The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, faction led by Ayuba Wabba has called off its strike action.
The fact in had called on workers to stay away from work since Wednesday in protest against the increase in petrol prices from N86 to N145.
The NLC, Ripples Nigeria gathered, opted to call off the strike which many observers argue was ineffective in order to allow for further negotiations with the Federal Government.
In a communiqué issued at the end of a two hour meeting of the National Executive Council, the Congress said it was ready to return to the negotiating table to discuss the issues that led to the strike and other burning issues affecting the welfare of Nigerian workers.
The communique signed by the President of Congress, Comrade Ayuba Wabba and the General Secretary, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson said however that it will continue to resist wrong legislations, policies and programmes of government and will always act in the best interest of Nigerians as it remains the only pan Nigerian organisation not affected by religion, region, creed, partisanship or primordial sentiments.
The NLC also commended the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the National Assembly for their intervention and asked the citizenry to be vigilant at all times as the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
