The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress and that of Trade Union Congress has agreed to suspend its nationwide protest.
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that the unions took the decision following a meeting they held with President Bola Tinubu at the State House in Abuja on Wednesday.
The Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communications and Strategy, Dele Alake, the unions opted for further constructive engagement with the government to resolve all outstanding issues as they affect the working people and Nigerians in general.
He said that Tinubu gave his commitment to the labour leaders that the Port Harcourt refinery will start production by December 2023 after the completion of the ongoing rehabilitation contract between NNPCL and Italian firm, Maire Tecnimont SpA.
According to him, Tinubu also assured the labour leaders to continue to work for the best interest of Nigeria while pleading with the labour leaders to join hands with him to birth a better and economically buoyant country.
The labour unions commenced the nationwide protest on Wednesday over what they described as “anti-poor” and “insensitive” policies of the Federal Government, following the removal of subsidy on petrol.
