The Muhammadu Buhari-led government has obtained a fresh court order stopping the planned strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).
Naija News reports that labour unions had fixed Monday, September 28, to begin protest and strike over the recent increase in electricity tariff and petrol price.
Following an ex parte application by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, Justice Ibrahim Galadima of the National Industrial Court (NIC) issued the restraining order on Friday.
This coming barely 24 hours after Justice Galadima made a similar restraining ex parte order in favour of a group, Peace and Unity Ambassadors Association, on Thursday.
The duo of Acting Director of the Department Civil Litigation of the Federal Ministry of Justice, Mrs Maimuna Shiru, and Mr Tijjani Gazali, led the Federal Government’s team, who moved the ex parte application that was later granted by Justice Galadima on Friday.
