NLC announced the strike suspension after a meeting of their leaders and representatives of the Federal Government on Monday at the Presidential Villa.

The Organised Labour has been slammed by Nigerians after the resolution they reached with the Federal Government over removal of fuel subsidy was made public by Festus Keyamo, a former minister.

Recall that NLC had after the meeting, announced it is suspending the proposed nationwide strike.

At the end of Monday’s meeting, both parties agreed to establish a joint committee to review the proposal for any wage increase and establish a framework and timeline for implementation.

Part of the resolution was for the federal government, the organised labour to review the World Bank-financed cash transfer scheme and propose the inclusion of low-income earners in the programme and reconvene on June 19 for further negotiations.

The joint team is expected to review issues hindering effective delivery in the education sector and propose solutions for implementation as well as establish the framework for the completion of the rehabilitation of the nation’s refineries.

Also, the federal government is to also provide a framework for the maintenance of roads and the expansion of rail networks across the country.

Nigerians slammed NLC and TUC, accusing them of not looking out for the interest of the masses.


Woke up to see the betrayal by NLC. I knew this was going to happen.

Once you see people who should be protesting almost sleeping in the Villa, compromise is the next thing. They suspended the strike without achieving anything. A hungry man cannot do Aluta. Shame!”


So, now that an agreement has bern reached. Is NLC still a part of LP or they are no longer LP?

Which one?


The NLC is extensively compromised !!  

It doesn’t represent the interest of the Nigerian workers.  Just some Shenanigans who position themselves to benefit from the plight of the masses and workers they represent

Sellouts !



So fuel is still 500+?


How much did you bribe the NLC WITH ??


The same people you said, they’re playing Peter Obi’s script. Festus go and pay Atiku N10m for your mannerless. At least you will lose some of the ill-gotten money you got in the last corrupt regime.
