Following the 14-day ultimatum issued by the organized labour regarding the challenges facing Nigerians, the Minister assured that the Federal Government is committed to upholding the commitments made to the workers.

 

Idris reiterated the government’s dedication to fulfilling its obligations and ensuring that agreements with the unions are honored without fail.

According to the minister: “Well, we appeal to labour to always see reason with the government. It is not in the government’s interest for the labour to continue to go on strike.

“I think the government keeps its promises. If there are other things that they (NLC, TUC) think they are concerned about, I think that they will sit down with the government and the government is ever ready to listen to labour so that we can have an amicable resolution to all these.

 

“We appeal with labour, let them come again, around the table to continue to have engagements and conversations around whatever grey areas they think they have in some of these agreements that have already been signed.”
