FG obtains fresh court order to stop labour strike

The Federal Government has obtained a fresh order stopping the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC from embarking on their planned strike which is to start on Monday.

The restraining order was issued on Friday by Justice Ibrahim Galadima of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria in Abuja following an exparte application by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation.

This is coming barely hours after a similar order was made by the same court.

The NLC and TUC had jointly issued a nationwide strike notice to demand the reversal of the recent hike in electricity tariff and petrol pump price.
