Labour unions were said to have staged a walk-out from a meeting with some representatives of the Federal Government.

The leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress allegedly staged a walk-out from a meeting with some Ministers representing the federal government shortly after the meeting started.

This was according to a report by Channels Television, yesterday.

The FG was represented by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, the Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Petroleum, Timiprye Sylva, Minister of state for Power, Goddy Agba and the Secretary to the Government, Boss Mustapha.

Before the closed-door meeting, President of the Trade Union Congress, Quadri Olaleye, had alleged that the federal government was dishonest, playing to the gallery, and painting the organised labour in a bad light before civil servants and the public.

According to Olaleye, the meeting’s agenda were the issues surrounding the hike in the price of fuel and electricity tariffs.
