Bobboi Kaigama, the President of the Trade Union Congress, has pledged the union’s support for the removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government.
Kaigama, however, said the TUC would no longer embark on the nationwide strike as earlier proposed.
He said the decision was taken at the National Executive Council meeting of the TUC.
He said: “We want to say that we have disengaged ourselves from this strike because we have been duly educated on the benefits of the fuel subsidy removal.”
Kaigama pledged continued support for government policies that would benefit Nigerian workers.
The Joe Ajaero-led faction of the Nigeria Labour Congress has also backed out of the planned labour strike.
