Listen to Nigerian govt, strike will bring hardship – Sultan to NLC, TUC


The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has urged the organised labour to listen to the Nigerian government because strike will throw the country into hardship.

Abubakar said the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC, should not be tired of negotiating with the government.

In a statement he signed, the Sultan urged the organised labour to shelve the strike.

The Sultan said: “The Labour leaders should consider the overbearing effects of the strike action they plan to embark upon in the wellbeing of the same Nigerians, whose interests they are fighting to protect, and therefore shelve the industrial action.

“We appeal to Labour not to take the nation through another leg of hardship because that exactly is what will happen, if they make good their plan to go on this strike.

“They should try to listen to the government while the government should listen to them and both parties should arrive at a conclusion that will be beneficial to all Nigerians, with the working class inclusive.”
