Nigeria Labour Unions Issue Ultimatum to Federal Government Over Unmet Agreement


February 9, 2024

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have issued a 14-day ultimatum, from tomorrow February 9 to February 14, 2024, to the Federal Government over the non-implementation of the 16-point agreement both parties reached after the removal of the petrol subsidy.

In a statement signed by the leaders of the two labour unions, Joe Ajaero and Festus Usifo yesterday, the organised labour expressed sadness that despite the passage of time, “the majority of crucial agreements remain unmet or negligibly addressed”.

According to the labour unions the agreements which were reached with the Federal Government were focused on addressing the massive suffering and the general harsh socioeconomic consequences of the ill-conceived and ill-executed IMF/World Bank-induced hike in the price of PMS and the Devaluation of the Naira.

It called upon the Federal Government to honor its commitments without delay, adding that the time for empty promises and excuses has passed.
