The industrial action embarked upon by organised labour in Nigeria since Thursday, September 27, 2017, has been suspended.
The strike was called off by leaders of the group on Sunday, September 30, 2018.
Workers in Nigeria had refused to work since last Thursday as a result of failure of authorities to increase their wages, which has the lowest presently pegged at N18,000. They want this increased to N56,000 as a result of inflation in the country.
Briefing newsmen on Sunday afternoon in Abuja, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Mr Ayuba Wabba, explained that the action was suspended to allow talks with the federal government.
Minister of Labour and Productivity, Mr Chris Ngige, had disclosed earlier that government would meet with labour leaders on Thursday, October 4, 2018.
At his address today, the labour leader said the union has received firm commitment from government to reconvene the Tripartite Committee of the Minimum Wage Committee this week.
