Shortly after declaring nationwide protests against the removal of fuel subsidies, the Organised Labour Union has decided to suspend its nationwide strike action. This decision follows a meeting with President Bola Tinubu, during which he made immediate commitments to address some of the issues raised by the Labour leaders.
A senior source within the Organised Labour Union confirmed to Vanguard that the strike was suspended based on the fruitful meeting with President Tinubu. The President had vowed to implement certain measures in response to the concerns raised by the Labour leaders during the meeting.
Previously, NLC and TUC had initiated a national industrial action to emphasize their demands regarding the removal of fuel subsidies.
In an attempt to appease the Labour Union, President Tinubu had delivered a national broadcast to Nigerians a day before the strike was declared. In his address, he explained the steps his administration was taking to address the hardships caused by the fuel subsidy removal. However, the broadcast faced criticism from NLC, which disputed the Federal government’s claims of saving N1 trillion through the subsidy removal.
