VIDEO: FG Reconvenes Meeting With NLC Over Subsidy Removal

Federal Government has reconvened a meeting with the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) for continuation of discussions on the removal of petroleum subsidy.

Gatekeepers News reports that President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Joe Ajaero, and members of his national executives arrived at the Presidential Villa around 5 pm on Monday for the meeting.

The newly appointed Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, is attending the meeting as well as the Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) of Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari.

The meeting comes hours after a National Industrial Court in Abuja had granted an interim order restraining the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) from going on strike from Wednesday as planned, until the determination of the motion on notice.

Also, the meeting comes 48 hours ahead of the proposed nationwide strike by the NLC over the removal of subsidy

The leadership of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had hours ago met with the FG committee and presented a list of demands before the government, the top of which is an increase in the minimum wage and a reversal to the old pump price while negotiations are ongoing.
