Adejobi urged the Nigerian Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress to return to the negotiation meetings with the Federal Government.

 
The Nigeria Police Force, NPF has urged organized labour not to go on strike.
 
Speaking on Monday, Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said strike could bring about tension and political instability in Nigeria.
 
Adejobi urged the Nigerian Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress to return to the negotiation meetings with the Federal Government.
 
The organized labour had embarked on the strike to push for an improvement in the minimum wage of workers.
 
While the organized labour is proposing N494,000 as new minimum wage, the Nigerian government is insisting on paying N60,000.
 
A statement by Adejobi reads: “in light of the Federal Government’s recent declaration that the planned strike is illegal and premature, the Nigeria Police Force views this action as a potential catalyst for increased tension and political instability.

“The NPF hereby urges organised labour to proceed with the ongoing deliberations at the Tripartite Committee, which is focused on determining a new minimum wage, and shelve the planned strike as such decision is essential to prevent untold hardships on members of the public and maintain order and stability within our country.

“The Nigeria Police Force assures the public that ample deployments have been made across the country to ensure that citizens can go about their lawful duties without hindrance.

“Therefore, all members of the public are encouraged to remain calm and continue with their lawful daily activities, while organized labour is urged to act responsibly and in accordance with the law, prioritizing dialogue and legal avenues to resolving the existing grievances.”
