WHY LABOUR—FG TALKS STALLED AND STRIKE/PROTESTS CONTINUE MONDAY 16 JANUARY 2012
The talks between the Federal Government and Labour represented by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) in Abuja on Saturday 14th January, 2012 stalled due to differences on the methodology in finding a solution to the crisis.
Labour’s analysis of the situation is that tension is very high in the land following the fuel price increase, the resultant strikes, rallies and street protests and the human causalities that have followed. And that a suspension of the new petrol prices will reduce tension and return the country to normalcy.
