The Organised Labour stated that it hadn’t been served any court order to halt the nationwide strike that started on Tuesday. Additionally, it criticized the government for consistently ignoring court orders while expecting strict compliance with judicial rulings from other entities.
“Yes, we don’t have a service on the court order but we have a government today who perpetually does not obey court orders. When DSS was holding Emefiele, how many court orders were passed for Emefiele to be released? Countless number of them,” TUC President Festus Osifo, who spoke on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme, said on Wednesday.
The labour leader has stated that upon receiving a court order concerning the current strike, they will engage their legal team for consultation and subsequently decide on the course of action.
“We have a state that refuses to obey court orders. You now expect others to obey court orders but once we see it, we are responsible institutions, we will not say because the Federal Government continuously violate court institution, we will examine it and if it is the right thing for us to do, yes, we will,” he said
On Monday, the Nigeria Labour Congress and the TUC instructed their member organizations to commence a nationwide withdrawal of services starting from midnight on November 14, 2023.
