Court stops NLC, TUC from embarking on strike over petrol subsidy removal

The National Industrial Court of Nigeria, sitting in Abuja, has restrained the organized labour, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) from embarking on any strike over the removal of petrol subsidy.

The ruling on Monday, by Justice OY Anuwe, the presiding judge, followed an application by the Federal Government to the court for an interim injunction restraining the organized labour from proceeding on the strike scheduled to begin on Wednesday.

Anuwe ruled that the unions should halt the planned strike pending the hearing and determination of the ex parte motion filed by the federal government.
