FG Secures Court Order To Stop Labour Strike

The National Industrial Court of Nigeria yesterday ordered the NLC and the TUC not to embark on their planned indefinite strike scheduled to commence on November 6.

The court headed by Justice Sanusi Kado gave the order in a ruling on an ex parte application brought before it on behalf of the federal government by the Solicitor-General of the Federation and permanent secretary in Federal Ministry of Justice, Mr Dayo Apata.

The judge said the order of interim injunction became necessary due to the urgency of the Labour Strike and the need to protect the overall interest of the public.

Accordingly, he fixed November 8 as return date in the case and warned the governors of the 36 states of the federation, joined in the suit as 3rd defendant under the aegis of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), not to do anything that would adversely affect the interest of their workforce pending the hearing and determination of the suit.

He ruled:

“In view of all that I have been saying above, it is the overall interest of justice and stability of the society to grant the order of interim injunction against the 1st and 2nd defendants (NLC and TUC).

Their members, privies, agents, proxies, workmen, or servants from embarking on or taking part in the planned Labour strike or industrial action scheduled to commence on November 6, 2018.

In whatever form pending the hearing or determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction, which is pending before the court.

“It is also necessary to grant an order of interim injunction restraining the 1st and 2nd defendants (NLC and TUC).

Their members, privies, agents, proxies, employees, workmen, or servants from engaging or taking part in any conduct or act in contemplation or furtherance of the Labour strike or industrial action scheduled to commence on November 6, 2018.

Pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.”
