NLC AND TUC ISSUE A 14- DAY ULTIMATUM TO THE FG to HONOUR IT’S PART OF AGREEMENT WITH LABOUR                                                               08-02-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                      The Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria has issued a 14- day Ultimatum to the Federal Government to honour its part of the agreement with Organized Labour.

This is contained joint statement by the President of NLC, Comrade Joe Ajaero and TUC President Comrade Festus Osifo.

The unions expressed displeasure over the non-implementation of the 16-point agreement reached with the Federal Government on October 2, 2023.

The statement says the non implementation is a disregard for the principles of good faith, welfare and rights of Nigerian workers.

The statement says the agreements reached with the federal government were focused on addressing the massive suffering and the general harsh socioeconomic consequences of the ill-conceived and ill-executed IMF/World Bank induced hike in the price of PMS and the Devaluation of the Naira.

According to the statement, widespread hunger is now ravishing millions of Nigerians, with the Workers purchasing power significantly eroded, while insecurity has assumed an increasing dimension.

The Organized Labour says these agreements have not been honored as promised by the Federal Government from Wage Awards, Palliative adjustments to improved access to public utilities.

The statement describes the government’s failure to uphold its end of the bargain is unacceptable to the working people and the citizenry.

“Therefore, everything must be done within the two weeks to avoid a situation where we may be compelled to take appropriate steps to protect Nigerian workers and masses. ” The statement reads.

The Organized Labour called the Federal Government to honor its commitments without delay.

“The time for empty promises and excuses has passed. The time for action is now. Our patience has worn thin and the situation has become unbearable for workers and masses all over the federation” The statement reads.
