Written by wave FM on November 23, 2020
Labour union representatives on Sunday staged a walk-out from a meeting with the federal government, barely five minutes after it started.
According to the president of the Trade Union Congress, QUADRI OLALEYE, on the meeting’s top agenda were the issues surrounding the hike in the price of fuel and electricity tariffs, not issues of palliatives.
In his opening remarks, OLALEYE accused the federal government of dishonesty, playing to the gallery and painting the organised labour in a bad light before civil servants and the public.
Representing the Nigerian Labour Congress was its deputy president, NAJEEM YASIN.
