Just In: Court Bars NLC, TUC from Going on Strike

2 Min Read

According to reports coming in, the National Industrial Court has barred the NLC and TUC from commencing the strike action that they were planning to commence tomorrow.

The NLC had issued a communique to the Federal Government threatening to go on strike unless the fuel price is reverted to its former price.

The Federal Government has been trying to negotiate with the Labour Unions but as a plan B also dragged them to court all in a bid to stop the proposed strike action.

The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) led the federal government’s team before the industrial court presided over by The President, Justice Babatunde Adejumo.

When asked how he knew about the impending strike, the AGF told the court that he had gotten notice of the communique on Sunday and quickly filed an originating summons, a motion on notice and an ex-parte application to determine whether NLC’s decision was justifi‎ed in the circumstance.

He contended that the ordinary citizens will be affected in a detrimental manner if the strike goes ahead.

Justice Adejumo granted the ex-parte motion stopping the strike even thought neither the TUC or NLC was represented in court. He did however order the service of all the relevant court processes on the respondents.

The restraining order against the Labout Unions will elapse in 7 days.
