The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have called off their nationwide strike. TUC president Festus Osifo confirmed this development on Tuesday in Abuja, adding that a formal statement will be released shortly.

The meeting, held at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) George Akume, focused on discussions about a potential increase in the minimum wage.
