(News investigators) The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has confirmed the suspension of its ongoing strike following the intervention of President Bola Tinubu and the Senate.
A source reports that during the protest in Abuja on Wednesday, angry protesters pulled down the gates of the National Assembly and gained access to the premises in a bid to meet with the lawmakers.
This prompted an emergency meeting between the President and the labour leaders.
The resolution followed the National Executive Council meeting of the Congress.
The national treasurer, Hakeem Ambali, in a message on Thursday said, “ Protest suspended due to the Senate intervention and meeting with President Tinubu yesternight.”
The labour centre is expected to brief the public shortly.
