Federal Government Withdraws Contempt Proceedings Against Organised Labour

Written by on August 8, 2023

The Federal Government says it has withdrawn the contempt of court proceedings against organised labour for embarking on a nationwide protest.

This is contained in a letter addressed to the lead counsel to the Nigeria Labour Congress, Femi Falana.

Recall that the Federal Ministry of Justice had through the National Industrial Court (NICN) issued the leadership of organized labour summons on contempt of court for embarking on the protest.

The organised labour, reacting to the court order threatened to embark on a nation-wide strike from Aug. 14, if the Federal Government failed to withdraw its contempt of court charges.
