The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) faction led by Joe Ajaero has backed out of the proposed nationwide strike over the hike in fuel price, which is expected to begin on Wednesday, May 17.

The faction took the decision after reaching an agreement with the Federal Government to set up a committee to resolve agitations over the new pump price.

According to Channels TV, the committee is expected to address the downward review of the pump price, determine new minimum wage and consult with the PPPRA for effective price regulation of petroleum products.

The committee is to submit its report in two weeks.

Meanwhile, representatives of the government is said to be in an ongoing meeting with the other faction of the NLC led by Wabba Ayuba.
