The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) have postponed the indefinite nationwide strike, which reached its second day on Wednesday.
The decision was made at a meeting on Wednesday that deliberated on the conclusion of an earlier engagement with the Federal Government chaired by Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser (NSA).
The suspension was confirmed by TUC President Festus Osifo this evening.
Organized labour said it has received a commitment from the Ribadu-led meeting that those arrested for the physical assault on NLC President, Joe Ajaero, would be prosecuted.
The NSA promised to bring both parties back to the table to iron out all issues in dispute, tendering an unreserved apology on behalf of the Federal Government for the brutalisation Ajaero and other members of the congress
