In a move to prevent Monday’s planned strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress(NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), the Federal Government has scheduled a meeting with the leadership of Organised Labour for 7pm on Sunday.
The meeting was earlier adjourned to Monday at 3pm following the inability of the Federal Government to reach an agreement with Labour on fuel and electricity tariff hikes.
Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Charles Akpan, confirmed the meeting in a text message.
The meeting will hold at the Old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja by 7pm.

“The meeting earlier scheduled for Monday 28th September 2020 is now scheduled as follows:
“Date: Today, Sunday, 27th September 2020
