The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have suspended their nationwide strike for five days.

A top official of the NLC said the suspension for the few days is to enable interrupted meeting between the organized labour and federal government on the way forward.

Labour had embarked on the strike after negotiations with the federal government on a new minimum wage met a brick wall.

The industrial action paralysed economic and government activities across the nation for two days.

Organised labour suspended the strike after its national executive council (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Tuesday. Festus Osifo, TUC president, said a communique on the development will be issued shortly.

Labour had reached an agreement with the federal government on a new minimum wage on Monday.
