LCCI sues for dialogue
The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), has called for a dialogue between labour and the Federal Government over the pump price hike.
Stating LCCI’s view regarding the NLC’s position, Akande said in a statement yesterday, that the Nigerian economy is already in a very fragile state with very little capacity to absorb the shocks of any major dislocations.
She added that the resultant hardship from a strike action at this time would be excruciating, especially for the majority of the citizens, micro and small businesses as well as the informal sector players of the Nigeria economy. This makes the dialogue option imperative.
She stated: “We welcome the offer by the Federal Government to immediately engage the leadership of the labour unions in dialogue for more effective communication on both sides.’’
