National Executive Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress, on Wednesday night, called off the ongoing strike.
According to the Labour unions, the suspension of the strike followed the intervention of the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu.
It was learnt that the meeting which started a few minutes past 7pm lasted for about one hour during which various affiliates and state chapters reviewed the outcome of the meeting held between the leaders of the organised labour and Ribadu.
TUC National Deputy Vice-President, Tommy Etim, disclosed this in an interview in Abuja.
“The NEC of the NLC and the TUC have suspended the strike. We did this based on our trust for the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, who gave us his words,” he said.
Earlier, the labour leaders met with Ribadu alongside the Minister of Labour, Simon Lalong, at the Office of the NSA on Wednesday afternoon.
Ribadu had announced that the persons who brutalised Ajaero had been arrested.
The organised labour is protesting against the alleged brutalisation of Ajaero, and the failure of the government to implement some of the agreements reached on October 2, 2023 effectively.
