Nationwide Shutdown: House of Reps Directs Labour Unions to Suspend Strike

The House of Representatives has asked the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to suspend their planned industrial action pending the outcome of its intervention.

At a special session on Monday, the Federal House of Representatives, asked the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to suspend their planned industrial action pending the outcome of its intervention.
According to TheCable, the house resolved to constitute an ad hoc committee to interface with the labour unions and stakeholders in the oil sector to find a solution to the impasse.
It can be recalled that on Saturday, the labour unions gave the federal government a 3-day ultimatum to reverse the price of petrol from N145 to N86.5 to avoid an indefinite strike.
But on Monday, the lower legislative chamber intervened through a motion moved by Ossai Osag, from Edo State, urging an ad hoc committee of the house to ‘jaw-jaw’ with labour leaders.
