NLC Insists Only Implementation of Agreement Will Stop Nationwide Strike

Written by on March 4, 2024

The Nigeria Labour Congress has insisted that only full implementation of agreements concerning hardship in the country would stop the planned nationwide strike.

This was contained in the latest letter written to the government, where in the NLC dismissed claims by the federal government that it had fulfilled 80 per cent of the October 2, 2023, agreement with organised labour.

In the letter addressed to the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, NLC’s Acting General Secretary, Ismail Bello, advised the government to, between now and March 13, 2024 deadline, fast-track the process of implementation of the agreement and avoid a looming industrial crisis.

NLC observed that  despite the firm pledge that products will start flowing out of the Port Harcourt  refinery latest December 2023, nothing has happened up until now.

It further noted that the promised N25,000 cash transfers to 15 million poor households have not materialised, rather,  what it called all manner of sad tales verging on deep corruption and other malfeasance have emerged from its management, substantiating the labour union’s earlier fears on the nature of the social register, among others.
