The Senate has suggested meeting with the leaders of the organised labour over the ongoing nationwide strike action
The Senate has suggested meeting with the leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), and other labour unions over the ongoing nationwide strike.
The Upper Chamber suggested this earlier today at the plenary while considering the strike as an issue of utmost importance.
The Senate also requested the labour unions to stop the strike and not shut down the country and its economy because of one person.

The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, had earlier apologised to his colleagues on behalf of Nigerian workers for the inconveniences constituted to free movement in and out of the National Assembly following the barricade of the gates by members of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria who are observing the strike at the complex.
He, however, thanked the chamber staff members for being able to enter the complex to prepare the chamber for plenary.
