The National Industrial Court has asked the Nigeria Labour Congress to suspend its planned strike pending the determination of a suit filed by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
But it was unclear Tuesday afternoon if the NLC will heed the court’s order. NLC President Ayuba Waba has said the final decision on the strike would be taken after the meeting between Labour and representatives of the Federal Government.
Malami had gone to court to challenge the strike being planned by the NLC and Trade Union Congress to protest the increase in the pump price of petrol.
The Federal Government had last week announced the increase in the cost of petrol from N86 to N145, saying it was facing a foreign exchange problem and that anybody wanting to import petrol should now source forex from secondary sources..
