The two labour unions, the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress have said they will go ahead with their planned nationwide strike on Monday.

This development occurred after the two court orders restraining the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress from embarking on their proposed industrial action.

According to The Punch they added that the mobilisation of workers for the strike and protest scheduled to commence on Monday had already commenced.

The NLC President, Ayuba Wabba and his TUC counterpart, Quadri Olaleye, also disclosed on Friday that they had not been served the court processes and would therefore not suspend the proposed strike.

One major effect of the recent hike in petrol and increase in electricity tariff is that it has generated nationwide criticism.

The NLC and TUC had jointly declared their readiness to embark on a nationwide strike to compel the Federal Government to reverse the recent hikes in electricity tariffs and petrol pump price.

Justice Ibrahim Galadima of the National Industrial Court in Abuja on Friday issued a fresh restraining order against the unions, following an ex parte application by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation.
