The NLC President, Joe Ajaero, his TUC counterpart, Festus Osifo, the NLC General Secretary, Emma Ugbaja, and the TUC Secretary General, Nuhu Toro were among the members of the organised labour delegation present at the meeting.
On the government team are the National Security Adviser, NSA, Nuhu Ribadu, the Minister of Finance, Wale Edun, Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, and the Minister of State for Labour, Nkeiruka Onyejecha.
The organised labour in a statement released after the meeting announced that the strike had been suspended for 30 days.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong while announcing the outcome of the meeting to State House correspondents said, “The NLC and TUC accept to suspend for 30 days the planned indefinite nationwide strike scheduled to begin, Tuesday, the 3rd of October, 2023.”
According to Lalong, the Memorandum must be filed to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction as a consent judgment by the FG within a week.
The NLC President, Joe Ajaero, stated that if the FG does not comply with the unions’ demands, the unions would review the agreement.
