The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) was on Tuesday asked by the National Industrial Court to shelve its planned strike pending the determination of a suit filed by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) challenging the decision.

The NLC, the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) and their civil society allies on Sunday gave the Federal Government till 12 midnight on Tuesday, 17th May, 2016 to revert to the old pump price of petrol or face a nationwide shut down of the economy.

A meeting between the organised Labour and the Federal Government held Monday to resolve the brewing crisis caused by hike in fuel price. The meeting was said to have ended in deadlock.
