The NLC Head of International Relations, Uchenna Ekwe, said the union only wants the right thing to be done and not embark on persistent industrial action.

Recall that both NLC and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, had issued a 14-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to fulfil the 16-point agreement with the workers since October last year.

The ultimatum had elicited negative reactions from some Nigerians who faulted the NLC for opting for strike amid the economic hardship.

Reacting, Ekwe said they only issue an ultimatum when the government fails to meet up with the union’s reminders.

Featuring on Channels Television’s The Morning Brief, Ekwe said: “Usually people see when NLC starts putting warning and if you notice the comments, people will say we don’t want a strike, it will disrupt.

“Balancing all these, Let me make this clear, the NLC is actually never interested in a strike, we don’t want a strike; we want the right things to be done.

“Before you see us issue a public ultimatum, there must have been many communications that are not meant public to the government system calling their attention to probably an agreement like in this case.”.…CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
