Don’t lose sleep over labour strike – FG tells Nigerians

BREAKING: Plateau Governor Simon Bako Lalong Orders 24 Hour Curfew in Jos North

Labor and Employment Minister Simon Lalong expressed confidence that the ongoing strike could be avoided after a crucial meeting with Vice President Kasshim Shettima.

He stated;

We have fully spent time with the Nigerian labour, and the posture of the president too is towards the welfare and prosperity for workers. We have no doubt.

When asked about the labour union strike threat, Lalong remained reassuring, saying, “Don’t worry about that. That’s why I said it was a friendly engagement with them. We have no reservations about some of the proposals they have made, as well as the federal government’s suggestions and package.”

Lalong assured reporters that the government is dedicated to the well-being and success of Nigerian workers.

Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, also expressed trust in the commitment of the labor leaders to the nation’s welfare, asserting that a strike is unlikely.

He stated;

Labour leaders are very patriotic Nigerians, and we want to believe correctly that nobody will want to cause a strike. It’s not in the interest of the workers; it’s not in the interest of anybody.

Akume stressed the government’s determination to improve the standard of living for all Nigerians and promote prosperity.

He also highlighted the government’s efforts in addressing the country’s challenges, acknowledging that substantial changes cannot be achieved immediately due to their four-year tenure.
