The Nigeria Labour Congress says it has suspended its planned strike following the intervention of President Bola Tinubu and the Senate.

The resolution followed the National Executive Council meeting of the Congress.

Punch reports that this was confirmed to him by the national treasurer, Hakeem Ambali, on Thursday morning , saying, “ Protest suspended due to the Senate intervention and meeting with President Tinubu yesternight.”

The NLC protest which was held yesterday across the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory prompted an emergency meeting between the President and the labour leaders.

Initially, the NLC had noted that it would only suspend its strike following a show of seriousness on the side of the government.

During the protest in Abuja on Wednesday, angry protesters pulled down the gates of the National Assembly in a bid to gain access to the premises so as to meet with the lawmakers.

The NLC president, Joe Ajaero, following the meeting with Tinubu said the President had made some commitments.
The labour centre is expected to brief the public shortly.
