Representatives of the Federal Government are currently meeting with the organised labour comprising of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress at the Presidential Villa, reports.
A reliable source privy to the meeting made this known in an interview with our correspondent on Wednesday evening.
According to the source, the negotiation committee set up by the government called for an emergency meeting following the strike notice issued by the NLC earlier in the day.
The NLC team was headed by its national president, Joe Ajaero, while the TUC team was headed by its president, Festus Osifo.
The PUNCH reports that NLC on Wednesday issued a seven-day ultimatum to the government over the recent hike in the price of Premium Motor Spirit and other “unfriendly policies”.
The congress noted that Nigerians lost their peace of mind following the “subsidy is gone” comment made by President Bola Tinubu on May 29, 2023.
