The National Industrial Court, NIC, sitting in Abuja has stopped the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, from embarking on a strike action tomorrow.
The National Industrial Court has asked the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, to suspend its planned strike. The President of the court, Justice Babatunde Adejumo, gave the order on Tuesday and it is to last for 7 days.
Ruling on an expatriate application filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami, the court ordered parties to maintain the status quo until the hearing and determination of the expatriate motion.
Justice Adejumo also directed the government to dialogue with the NLC towards an amicable resolution of their dispute.
