The Organized Labour has attributed its decision to call off the strike its embarked on to the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu.

The latter had met with the workers’ leadership on Wednesday and talked them into calling off the industrial action arising from the assault meted out to Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC President, Joe Ajaero, in Imo State.

The National Deputy President of the Trade Union Congress, Tommy Etim, said Ribadu’s manners swayed them from going ahead with the strike.

Etim made this known and many others saying, “The NECs of the NLC and the TUC have suspended the strike. We did this based on our trust in the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu who gave us his word. We also saw that he wasn’t playing politics with our demands and he was ready and promised to follow up with everything.

“It is a temporary suspension. We are going to give them some time after which we will meet and if they fail to meet up, the strike resumes.

“We listened to the NSA and he listened to us. He noted that Ajaero didn’t do anything wrong by going to Imo State. We must commend the NSA and it is because of him that there is a suspension of the strike.”
