Talks between the federal government and the Ayuba Wabba-led Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have ended in a deadlock.

The NLC delegation to the meeting, led by its President, Mr Ayuba Wabba, walked out of the negotiation following the inability of the two parties to reach an agreement.

Mr Wabba thereafter told journalists that the strike will hold on Wednesday as planned.

The Federal Government earlier reached an agreement with the Joe Ajaero-led faction of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to set up a committee to resolve agitations over the new pump price of petrol.

The committee is expected to address the downward review of the pump price, determine new minimum wage and consult with the PPPRA for effective price regulation of petroleum products.

The committee is to submit its report in two weeks.

The leadership of the NLC has been divided over the threat to embark on the national industrial action in an attempt to coerce the government to revert the increase in price of petrol.

The National Industrial Court, earlier on Tuesday restrained the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) from going on its planned strike on Wednesday, pending the hearing and determination of a suit brought before it by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).

The Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, dragged the NLC to the Industrial Court, seeking an order of the court restraining the NLC from proceeding with the planned strike.

He had sought the order on the ground that the strike would paralyse the nation’s economy.
