(NAN) The Federal Government and organised labour on Thursday in Abuja agreed to shift grounds in their respective positions to end the on-going national protest against the removal of fuel subsidy.
NLC’s president, Comrade Abdulwaheed Omar, told newsmen after a tripartite meeting between government, labour and civil society groups that the agreement was reached after prolonged negotiations.
Emerging from the meeting, Omar said the three interest groups had useful discussions toward ending the strike and protests soon.
He said that the meeting would reconvene on Saturday.
“The outcome is that we have not concluded discussions yet, but we have had very fruitful discussions, but we have to continue on Saturday.
“Of course all of us are trying to shift ground; that is why I told you that we have had very fruitful discussions and we will continue,” he said.
