Nigerians has attacked NLC and  TUC for suspending planned nationwide strike over the increase in petrol and electricity tariff.

On Monday morning, NLC and TUC agreed to suspend the strike after meeting with the federal government.

The Minister of Labour and Employment (State), Festus Keyamo revealed that the new agreement involves the suspension of the new electricity tariff hike for two weeks.

@SimplyOmoniyi “U have said it several times, we don’t have labour union anymore. This is tge worst set of labour leaders we have. They are only interested in cashing out and clout chasing. Paschal Bafyau and Adams Oshiomole remain the best labour leaders this country even had. What a pity.”

@Martmekus “Labour is not serious yet. So they didn’t demand for a cut on salaries, emoluments & allowance of political leaders? No cut on no of aides? They didn’t demand for a stop to the subsidizing of political leaders in terms of us paying for rent, food, fuel etc. No, we are not ready.”

@Premadonnaviv “Two weeks reversal of electricity tariff hike isn’t enough to suspend the strike. We all know that the ‘palliatives’ the FG is offering is bullshit.What about fuel price? Most areas don’t even have stable electricity, we almost always rely on fuel for everything.”

@MFarees “Federal Government orders the halt in the electricity hike so that labour would suspend the strike, but ASUU has been on strike for almost 6 months now, and the FG ain’t saying nothing about it, because education is not their business, only Labour strike could affect them.”

@Super_Spotter “Labour suspends strike after reaching an agreement with FG overnight! No surprises. My own is, of all the demands, FG only suspended the increase in electricity tariffs for 2 weeks. Nothing said about petrol. NLC didn’t even talk about the prolonged AsUU strike! We’re not ready.”
