The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has officially ended its two-day warning strike, instructing its members across the nation to resume regular work activities. NLC President, Joe Ajaero, expressed his appreciation to Nigerian workers for their active participation in the strike, noting that it had achieved a significant impact.
The labor force initiated the nationwide strike on Tuesday and Wednesday in protest of unmet agreements with the Federal Government regarding the removal of petrol subsidies. This decision effectively disrupted economic and commercial operations in multiple states throughout the Federation.
“We are pleased to report that, thanks to your resolute commitment, we have made significant strides in achieving the goals set during our National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, which prompted the initiation of this warning strike,” Ajaero said.
“It is abundantly clear that our united message has resonated loudly with the government, and it would take a truly inattentive ear not to hear it.
“As we mark the end of the two-day nationwide warning strike today, at the stroke of midnight, we earnestly call upon you all to gracefully conclude the strike and return to work tomorrow, in accordance with our initial agreement.”
