Court Stops Labour From Going On Strike Over Fuel Price Hike by haywire1: 12:51pm On May 17, 2016
Abuja - The Nation Industrial Court has restrained the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and other labour unions from embarking on their proposed strike on Wednesday.
The Federal Government had on Tuesday dragged the NLC, TUC and their affiliates before the National Industrial Court seeking to stop the looming strike threatened by the Labour group over the fuel pump price increment.

The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) was said to have led the federal government's team before the industrial court led by Justice Babatunde Adejumo, the President.
When asked by the presiding judge, how the AGF knew the NLC was planning to go on strike Malami said he saw a statement issued by the labour union on their website and that the statement had been published by the media.

The meeting between the labour unions and the federal government on Monday was deadlocked as both parties refused to shift ground.
The labour unions had asked the federal government to reverse to the old fuel price of N86.50, but the government pleaded with the labour organisations to see reasons with its action and shelve its planned strike, saying it was open to dialogue with the bodies.
In attendance at the meeting were the NLC president Ayuba Wabba; NLC General Secretary, Peter Ozo-Esun; NUPENG president, Igwe Achese; PENGASSAN President, Olabode Johnson; TUC President, Bobboi Kaigama; Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige; Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang; and the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.

Wailers should get ready to take their Walk of Shame tomorrow.

PMB succeeding anywhere GEJ failed.

The former can't even remove the subsidy without getting the country into shutdown. Now this is how to removed the subsidy.

We cant continue to take the easy option and expect better tomorrow.

God bless Nigeria
God help PMB n Osinbaba
God help us all
Shame! Shame!!Wailers shame!!!
Baba forgives you

i seen these people as true activists of poor masses when they absolutely kicked against the removal of fuel subsidy e.g Professor Wole Soyinka, Tunde Bakare,David West, Funmi Iyanda,Ayo Sogunro, Ikhide Ikheloa,Dino Melaye, Tolu Ogunlesi,Nasir El-Rufai , Ibe Kachikwu,Bola Tinubu etc including ACN and CPC . Muhammadu Buhari : Before he became President, he fiercely maintained that fuel subsidy ''does not exist'' but few days ago his government just removed a non- existent fuel. They occupied Nigeria in 2012 Mr Lia Mohammad was canvassing Nigerians in 2012 that fuel subsidy was a scam.Nigerians were convinced to believe that there is nothing called fuel subsidy and Mr GEJ was not bold enough to stand on his feet. If truly fuel subsidy needed to be removed, we don't need politics of antagonism simply because of power.If fuel subsidy is removed by APC or PDP that is not the issue, the issue is just the level of sincerity in it.Today they are seeing people against the removal of fuel subsidy as wailers.Politicians should know that you can't sow hatred and heap Love. What goes around, comes around.That is the Laws of Karma .They said there was nothing called fuel subsidy in 2012,today there is something called fuel subsidy and must be removed. The moral lessons are these,remember that the actions you are taking today may stand against you tomorrow and don't conceal the fact because of hatred but speak the truth because of love.

God bless Nigeria

NLC should have asked for actual cost/template of PMS and requested for transparency not a reverse. I know Buhari won't shake ground.



No enough fund to subsidized fuel as the Vice President stated, i think its better we deal with this situation once and for all.( My Opinion thou)

Thats' what happens when you have SAN as a vice president and I don't think it's possible for NLC leaders to defy court order otherwise they risk loosing their position, court may declear them a threat to national security

Labour is just not coordinated at all.

You cant use the same old format (strike) all the time.

The world has moved on; engagement and negotiations are the buzz words now. Labour has been ambushed. Any strike would be viewed as illegal and abuse of court order.

Wise move by FG, why would the NLC continue to be used to keep the subsidy regime afloat, its time subsidy go and NLC should just stay away, Nigeria needs to move on.
