In a sudden turn of events, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have officially suspended their ongoing indefinite nationwide strike. The decision, announced by the National Executive Council (NEC) on Wednesday night, comes in the wake of the intervention by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu.

The labour unions had initiated the strike in response to the reported brutalization of NLC President, Joe Ajaero, by police officers in Owerri, Imo State, on November 1. This incident had sparked outrage and prompted both Labour Centres to direct their members and affiliated groups to commence an indefinite nationwide strike starting on Tuesday, November 14, 2023.

The suspension of the strike indicates a willingness on the part of the labour unions to engage in diplomatic dialogue. The involvement of the National Security Adviser suggests a commitment to finding a peaceful resolution to the issues that led to the industrial action.

While details of the resolution are yet to be fully disclosed, the decision to suspend the strike is a positive step towards de-escalating tensions. It is anticipated that both parties will continue negotiations to address the underlying concerns that triggered the initial strike.
