Reported by Ayooluwa Afolabi

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have called off their industrial strike due to the lack of agreement on a new minimum wage and the hike in electricity tariff for one week.

Both labor unions embarked on a strike on Monday to protest the increase in electricity tariff and the lack of agreement on a new minimum wage.

The development ground activities in major sectors of the economy with schools, businesses, hospitals, and airports shut. The national grid was also shut down, throwing the nation into darkness.

According to Channels, The TUC president Festus Osifo confirmed this in Abuja on Tuesday after a joint extraordinary national executive council meeting of the unions.

“A joint NEC meeting of TUC/NLC has approved to relax the industrial action for one week with immediate effect,” Osifo told Channels Television.

A communique will be issued shortly, the Labour Chief said.
