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.
