Today, representatives from the Federal Government and the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) are set to resume discussions on measures to mitigate the impact of petrol subsidy removal.
This comes after the NLC threatened to engage in industrial action to protest the subsidy removal but later suspended their planned strike following negotiations with the government.
The NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have put forward specific demands to alleviate the effects of the increased fuel prices and other essential goods resulting from the subsidy removal.
The meeting, scheduled for 4 pm today, aims to reach a consensus on some of these demands. The gathering will take place at the presidential Villa in Abuja, as stated by Kachallom Daju, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.
