Electricity Tariff, Petrol: FG Obtains Fresh Order To Stop Planned Labour Strike

The Federal Government on Friday obtained a fresh order to stop the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) from embarking on their planned strike which is billed to commence on Monday.

The restraining order was issued on Friday by Justice Ibrahim Galadima of the National Industrial Court in Abuja, following an ex parte application by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation.

This is coming barely 24 hours after the same judge made a similar restraining order in favour of a group, Peace and Unity Ambassadors Association, on Thursday.

The NLC and TUC had jointly declared to embark on a nationwide strike on Monday to press for the reversal of the recent hike in electricity tariff and petrol pump price.
