The President-General of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) Comrade (Prince) Dr. Adewale Adeyanju fnli HFCPSP, in the same vein equally ordered that all the nation’s Seaports, Jetties, Oil & Gas platforms and Terminals be shut down accordingly for operations.


But after the outcome of emergency meeting summoned today, October 2, 2023, between the federal government and labour leaders was held, the NLC and TUC had jointly agreed to suspend the strike to allow for implementation of the NLC demands.


Consequently, the National Executive Council (NEC) of the NLC had directed that all its affiliate members should direct their members to return to work on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 as the planned indefinite strike has been suspended.


Comrade Adeyanju, the Deputy President of the Nigeria Labour Congress had equally directed that all members of the Maritime sector should resume work Tuesday as instructed by the Nigeria Labour Congress.
