The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has vowed to continue with the street protests until the Federal Government reverses the recent hike in the price of petrol.
There was however a mild drama as some youths opposed to demands of
the workers and threatened to stop NLC-Civil Society Coalition rallies.
The second day of the strike called by the leadership of the NLC witnessed partial compliance in Jos, particularly at some Federal Government offices while the rate of compliance was high at the Joseph Gomwalk Secretariat.
Meanwhile, President of the Senate Bukola Saraki and his counterpart in the house of representatives, Yakubu Dogara yesterday met with the organized labour union led by the Ayuba Waba faction.
The leadership of the National Assembly defended the action of the executive arm of government in deregulating the petroleum downstream sector.
In his response, the president of NLC, Ayuba Waba said the union will not rest on its oars until their demands are met.
