Strike: Atiku Begs FG, Labour to Go Back to Negotiating Table

By LAIDE AKINBOADE

Former Vice President and Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has  urged both organized labour and the  federal government to exercise restraint and avoid creating situations that will plunge the nation into deeper crises.

In a statement issued by Atiku and signed on his behalf by his media aide, Paul Ibe, he however, reiterated his position in support of organised labour in its struggle for a living wage even as implored labour to reconsider its stance on an industrial strike action.

He encouraged both sides to go back to the negotiating table and reach an agreement, saying “Our economy is already on its knees and escalation of this crisis into full blown industrial strike action may have dire consequences for our nation”.
