Written by on June 14, 2023

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has restated its confidence in the country’s judiciary, saying it remains unshakeable after its ruling on the Labour union’s planned strike action.

The NLC, in a statement today, signed by its President, Joe Ajaero stated that its faith in the judiciary remains unshakeable adding that it will continue to respect courts and create value around the institution of the judiciary as part of the process of sustaining our democracy.

Recall that the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had asked the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN), Abuja, to set aside its interim order that stopped the two workers’ bodies from embarking on their planned industrial action against the recent removal of fuel subsidy by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The NLC and TUC in a Motion on Notice dated June 7 but filed June 8 by their lawyer, Femi Falana claimed that the suit by the Federal Government “as presently constituted and the reliefs sought offends the lucid provisions of Section 254C (1) (f) of the 1999 Constitution and Section 7(6) of the National Industrial Court Act 2006.
