The Federal Government has appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to suspend its proposed 2-day nationwide warning strike over economic hardship caused by the fuel subsidy removal.

VerseNews had earlier reported that the NLC President, Joe Ajaero in a statement declared a two-day warning strike, beginning on Tuesday, September 5, in protest against the Federal Government for failing to address the challenges caused by the removal of fuel subsidy.

The labour union is accused FG of abandoning the negotiations and failing to implement some of the resolutions from previous meetings with the government.

However, the, Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong at a news conference on Monday in Abuja appealed to the union and consider the fact that the Cabinet of the present administration was recently sworn in by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“As such action would be detrimental to the gains already being recorded on our course to securing a greater future for Nigerian workers and citizens at large.

“Furthermore, I would request that the Comrade Leadership of the NLC gives this government some time to settle and address the issues on the ground holistically.

“It should be realised that the Cabinet of this administration was only recently sworn in by Mr President and all cabinet members have hit the ground running by receiving briefings from their MDAs.

“Therefore, the issues raised by the leadership of the NLC are some issues that I and the Minister of State for Labour and Employment are being briefed upon,” he said.
