Following the nationwide shutdown of economic activities on Monday due to the organised labor strike, the Federal Government has invited the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) to an emergency meeting at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.

The meeting, according to an attendee from organized labor, aims to find solutions to the issues that prompted the industrial action and ultimately end the strike.
