36 Governors To Hold Emergency Meeting Over NLC Planned Strike

The 36 state governors are to hold an emergency meeting over the threat by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to embark on an industrial action to demand that the Federal Government rescinds its decision on the recent hike in the prices of petroleum products and electricity.

NLC earlier announced that it would proceed with its planned  nationwide protest   with effect from Sept. 28 over Federal Government refusal to reverse the hikes in electricity tariff and fuel pump price.

The Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) disclosed this in a statement issued by its Head, Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, in Abuja on Wednesday.

Bello-Barkindo said that the emergency meeting scheduled for 6pm on Thursday would seek ways of settling the rift and find a mutual agreement.
