Federal Government has appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to suspend its proposed 2-day nationwide warning strike over economic hardship.

This was disclosed today by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Mr Simon Lalong, at a news conference in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

It would be recalled that the NLC had in a communique issued at the end of its National Executive Council meeting, said it would commence a 2-day nationwide warning strike from the 5th to 6th of September, 2023.

While Responding to the communique, the Minister of Labour and Employment noted that, the planned industrial action would reverse some of the gains already made by the current administration.

He also said that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s led administration would continue to pursue policies aimed at massive employment generation in all sectors of the economy.

Mr. Lalong however said that he was yet to be served official communication of the NLC communiqué, following its NEC meeting as required by law.

He further urged the NLC to do the needful by following laid down processes for handling such matters adding that all the issues raised by the NLC would be looked into one after the other.
