Following a meeting at the presidential villa in Abuja, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress have called off the nationwide protest they embarked upon on Wednesday.

NLC President Comrade Joe Ajaero and Trade Union Congress Comrade Festus Usifo met with President Bola Tinubu for a fruitful and frank discussion. As a result of their confidence in his ability to address the issues put forward by the Labour Movement, the Labour Leaders decided to halt further protests.

A statement from Dele Alake for the Presidency revealed that the Labour Leaders have chosen to engage constructively with the government to resolve outstanding issues affecting working people and Nigerians as a whole.

At the meeting, President Tinubu assured the Labour leaders that the Port Harcourt refineries will recommence production by December 2023, once the ongoing rehabilitation contract between NNPCL and Italian firm, Maire Tecnimont SpA, is finalized.

President Tinubu expressed his commitment to working for the best interests of Nigeria and appealed to the Labour leaders to join hands with him in the pursuit of a better and economically prosperous country.
