Recall that the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had earlier declared that their members would begin a nationwide strike in 14 days over the ongoing hardship in the country.

Following the declaration, the federal government held a meeting with the leadership of the two unions, where they were urged to suspend the planned strike.

Will FG stop the NLC strike?

The federal government team was led by the minister of state for labour and employment, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, who promised that payment of the wages would be promptly paid henceforth.

However, Ajaero and the vice president of the TUC, Tommy Okon, at the meeting, stood their ground and urged the federal government to fulfil his promise to the workers.

Days after, the governors of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) accused the Tinubu-led federal government of ruining the country’s economy and compared it to that of Venezuela, but the presidency accused the governors of failing as leaders over their failure to pay salaries and pension despite getting an increase in their federal allocation.
