Written by Olarotimi Oshin on March 28, 2023
To avert strike and picketing of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) offices nationwide by members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, on Monday, met with the President of NLC, Joe Ajaero, and top officials of the CBN, led by Governor Godwin Emefiele.
Ngige, who received the groups at the Ministry of Labour, in Abuja, urged the NLC to engage the CBN through effective dialogue, rather than adding more pain to the already troubled economy.
Ajaero at the meeting said it had to report back to the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Congress to give a fresh directive on what has been observed. The NLC also directed workers to report banks not dispensing cash to the state councils.
