The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has given Federal Government a two-week ultimatum to reverse the electricity tariff and the pump price of petrol or face civil unrest nationwide.
The eight-hour meeting between the organised labour and the Federal Government delegation on Tuesday ended in a stalemate.
The decision to proceed on strike is the outcome of the Central Working Committee meeting which held for several hours at the nation’s capital, Abuja.
In a communiqué read by NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, the body said the ultimatum takes immediate effect, warning that at the end of its expiration on September 28; it would mobilise its members nationwide for civil unrest.
Federal Government has not yet reacted to the threat.
