Labour Unions Suspend Nationwide Strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have suspended their nationwide strike for one week.

TUC President Festus Osifo announced this on Tuesday in Abuja, following a joint extraordinary national executive council meeting of the unions.

Osifo indicated that a formal communique would be issued soon.

The strike, initiated on Monday, was in protest against the hike in electricity tariffs and the lack of agreement on a new minimum wage.

The strike had paralyzed activities in critical sectors of the economy, leading to the closure of schools, businesses, hospitals, and airports. Additionally, the national grid was shut down, causing widespread power outages.
