Ahead of Wednesday’s nationwide strike, the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress has summoned an extraordinary National Executive Council, NEC, meeting.
In the course of the meeting, the organized labour will review the modalities of the planned strike following the attack on the National President of the NLC, Joe Ajaero, review the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Federal Government and the Organized Labour on October 2, 2023, following the removal of the subsidy on fuel.
TUC’s National Vice-President, Tommy Etim, disclosed the summon on Tuesday.
Recall that the organized labour had on Friday last week, issued a five-day ultimatum ahead of its protest against Ajaero’s arrest in Owerri, Imo State.
The labour centres demanded the redeployment of the commissioner of police in the state and the arrest and prosecution of the aide of the governor alleged to have perpetrated the attack.
The unions also threatened to embark on a nationwide strike if their demands were not met in five days.
Ajaero was arrested by the police ahead of the state-wide protest in Imo on Wednesday.
