The Federal Government will be meeting with the Ayuba Wabba led faction of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), today, Wednesday, May 25, 2016.

This is coming after the union called off its indefinite strike action on Sunday, May 22, 2016, after a meeting with the All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The Deputy Director, (Press), Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Samuel Olowookere, in a statement said “The negotiation between the Federal Government and Comrade Ayuba Wabba-led NLC will reconvene tomorrow (today) by 2:00 pm and the venue is the conference hall of Secretary to the Government of the Federation.”

The Federal Government had also reached an agreement with the Joe Ajaero-led faction of NLC.

The minister of labour, Chris Ngige, later said the government would not continue with the negotiations if the strike was not called off.

The labour union decided to embark on a nationwide strike action, following the increase of the pump price of fuel to N145.

The Federal Government announced the increase on  Wednesday, May 11, 2016.
