ABUJA, June 3, 2024 – The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has issued a statement urging organized labour to reconsider their decision to embark on a nationwide strike, emphasizing the importance of complying with legal procedures to prevent a breakdown of law and order in the country.

In response to the recent announcement by organized labour regarding their intention to strike, the NPF acknowledges their right to advocate for workers’ interests but underscores the necessity of adhering to existing laws governing such actions.

Expressing concern over the Federal Government’s declaration that the planned strike is illegal and premature, the NPF warns of the potential for increased tension and political instability should the strike proceed.

The NPF urges organized labour to prioritize ongoing deliberations at the Tripartite Committee, focused on determining a new minimum wage, and to postpone the planned strike to prevent hardships on the public and maintain order and stability.

Assuring the public of adequate security measures, the NPF encourages citizens to continue with their lawful activities while calling on organized labour to engage in responsible dialogue and utilize legal avenues to address grievances.
