The Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have given the Federal Government a 14-day ultimatum if they don't implement the 16-point agreement that was reached after the petrol subsidy was removed.
Despite the passage of time, "the majority of these crucial agreements remain unmet or negligibly addressed, indicating a blatant disregard for the principles of good faith, welfare and rights of Nigerian workers and Nigerians," organised labour expressed regret in a statement signed on Thursday by the leaders of the two labour unions, Festus Usifo and Joe Ajaero.

According to organised labour, the Federal Government has 14 days, from tomorrow, February 9, to February 14, 2024, to fulfil its half of the agreement. with the labour unions.
