JUST IN: President Buhari Keeps Shut, As Fuel Scarcity Set To Paralyse The Entire Country, Any Moment From Now

Emerging report indicates that Nigerians are filling their vehicle tanks and jerrycans with fuel, ahead of the November 6, commencement of the nationwide strike.

Post-Nigeria recalls, that the Organised Labour vowed to shut down the country, if the Federal and State Governments failed to show commitment to pay N30,000 as minimum wage.

On Saturday and Sunday, in Lagos State, last-minute buying in some areas on the mainland and Island, was observed.

Against the typical scenes, gas stations on Ikorodu road and Ikeja, witnessed increased activities and long queue.

Similarly, stations in Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lekki-Epe expressway, were also filled with motorists.

The panic buying is expected to continue on Monday, except Government and Labour reach a truce.

On Friday, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said that the conciliation on the national minimum wage will continue, despite the court injunction restraining Organised Labour from embarking on a strike.

Justice Sanusi Kado, gave the order in a ruling on an exparte application moved on behalf of the Federal Government by the Solicitor-General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Justice, Dayo Apata.

“The conciliation meeting involving the Organised Labour, the Organised Private Sector and Government scheduled for Sunday, November 4, at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, by 6pm, is still on course and will hold’’, Ngige said.

Ngige disclosed that this will be followed by another meeting of the National Tripartite Minimum Wage Committee meeting, on Monday, November 5, at the same venue.

The Minister appealed to all tripartite members to attend the meetings, in the interest of the nation and finding a solution to the minimum wage impasse.

Meanwhile, the National President of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, will take a stand on the planned strike, on Monday.

A source close to the National Leadership, confirmed this on Sunday.

“The Union has not decided on whether or not to join the strike, but will meet tomorrow.

“We are also monitoring the tripatrate Committee meeting, and expecting a fruitful outcome”, he said.
