Nigerian workers under the aegis of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have suspended their planned strike over the hike in fuel prices as a result of subsidy removal.

The union said it would commence a nationwide strike on Wednesday, asking the Federal Government to revert to the old rate of N197 per litre to prevent the strike.

But the government filed a suit to prevent the strike, and the court ordered NLC not to go on the strike.

News of the court order broke while government representatives and NLC officials were at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, for continued discussions after the initial deadlock.

At the end of the meeting, NLC announced that some measures had been put in place, and an agreement was reached for the strike not to go on as planned.
