The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has advised organised labour against embarking on industrial action.

The warning was contained in a communiqué issued by the NGF Vice-Chairman and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, on Friday.

Tambuwal explained that any plan to down tools, will worsen the already deteriorating economic situation brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“On the call for national strike action by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), the Forum believes that the labour unions should exercise caution on the call for strike action, noting that any strike action will worsen the currently deteriorating economic situation of the country brought by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the communiqué partly read.

“While expressing concern over the call for national strike action by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Forum members suggested the provision of a cushioning arrangement to ameliorate the effect of subsidy removal.”

The meeting between the Federal Government and the Organised Labour over the hike in fuel price and electricity tariff has been postponed until Monday, September 28.

Labour unions had fixed the same day to commence a nationwide strike.
