Abuja — today marks the end of the ultimatum given to the Federal Government by the Nigerian Labour Congress, to address the issue of subsidy removal in the country.
The mass suffering and pains in the country as a result of the removal of subsidy has been much. According to NUJ, today marks the deadline which was given to the Federal Government.
The leadership of the Congress will meet next week to decide when to begin an indefinite nationwide strike.
The report has it that the Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima has been meeting with some members of the Congress to deliberate on how to avert the issue.
Information gathered also says that some ministers are putting together awards to be presented to the NLC leadership. Among the ministers are; the Minister of Finance, Wale Edun, and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, alongside the Vice President, Kashim Shettima.
Another source said: “The issue is conventional, when an ultimatum expires, you call your organs and the organs will decide when to commence the strike. If we ever decide to say we would take one day or few days or one week to prepare for it, that would be their position.”
