The state Chairman of NLC, Mrs Funmi Sessi, who made this known on Tuesday in Lagos, urged government to be dutiful and diligent in fulfilling its part of the agreement.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the NLC had on Jan. 25 suspended its planned nationwide protest.

The decision came hours after the union had vowed to continue with its planned nationwide rally after the government had announced the suspension of the planned removal of the fuel subsidy.

“The NLC has reviewed every situation surrounding the protest; we have reviewed the intervention of those top leadership of the country; also the intervention of those who are the stakeholders.

“Government has said it is not going ahead with the increase in the petrol price and we are not expecting the increase at any point in time, whether now or in the future.

“We expect government to be truthful, dutiful, diligent and work on our refineries,“ Sessi said.
