Negotiation meetings between the workers union and the Federal Government on Tuesday had ended in a deadlock, as the leadership of the NLC under Wabba walked out of the meeting.
However, government reached an agreement with another faction of the NLC led by Joe Ajaero, to set up a committee to resolve agitations over the new pump price of petrol.
Despite the agitations of NLC leaders, some workers didn’t comply with the strike action due to the threat by the Federal Government as work was ongoing at the Federal Secretariat and National Hospital.
Meanwhile, the Vice President of NLC, Peter Adeyemi, and a member of a civil society organisation, Jaye Gaskia believe that the number of people standing with the cause will not stop the union from achieving success.
