He expressed that while President Tinubu’s measures were welcomed, they were not comprehensive enough to address all their concerns.
The Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, acknowledged that the organised labour was a listening organization and might reconsider the protest after hearing President Tinubu’s national broadcast.
The government appealed to the labour unions to call off the protests to allow for further conversations and dialogue on the issues raised.
What to expect
As the discussions continue, the labour unions are expected to make a final decision regarding the nationwide protest in response to President Tinubu’s interventions.
