The Federal Government on Monday backtracked and withdrew its contempt suit filed against leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress for organising nationwide anti-subsidy protests on August 2, 2023.

The development came barely five days after the Federal Ministry of Justice sued the organised labour leaders for allegedly disobeying a court order barring them from leading the nationwide protest.

The National Industry Court had stopped the organised labour from going on strike but human rights lawyer and counsel to the organised work, Femi Falana, insisted the union could proceed with the protest.

On Wednesday evening, the organised labour met with President Bola Tinubu and agreed to end the one-day protest. This came with agreements that the Federal Government would approve labour awards and expedite the implementation of subsidy palliative.
