Labour Refuse to Shift Ground as Court Stops Protest

Talks between the Federal Government and Organised Labour on recent hike in the pump price of petrol and electricity tariff ended in a deadlock last night.
This came as the national industrial court yesterday granted an order restraining the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), their officers, affiliates and privies from embarking on any strike or stoppage of work next Monday.

The Labour Unions had earlier given the Federal Government a seven-day ultimatum to reverse the price and electricity tariff increase. Both parties refused to shift ground at yesterday’s meeting between the federal government and organised Labour to find a common ground.
NLC and TUC insisted they would proceed with the planned protest and industrial action unless the government reverts the status quo in respect of the price of petrol and electricity tariff. The federal government, on its part maintained that its decision to increase the pump price of petrol was not to inflict pain or cause harm to Nigerians.

The Court also granted an order compelling the inspector-general of police and the director- general of the department of state services (DSS) to provide protection for workers engaged in their legitimate duties from any form of harassment, intimidation and bullying by the officers, agents or privies of the unions pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

F.G. asks L.A.S.G. to Provide Land For Mass Housing Programme

The Federal Government has appealed to Lagos State Government to provide land for the takeoff of the present administration’s mass housing scheme in the state.

The Federal Controller of Housing in Lagos State, Margaret Adejobi, made the appeal in Lagos on Sunday. She stated that the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing had explored various means to ensure immediate take off of the mass housing programme in Lagos State but was constrained by lack of land.

Adejobi said that Lagos State Government had in the past allocated a waterlogged land in Abijo near Epe, adding that the cost of sand filling the area would make the houses unaffordable.

Adejobi said that the ministry was also exploring other options to get suitable land for immediate commencement of mass housing for residents.

She appealed to government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to donate some of their vast parcels of land for mass housing for Lagos residents.

According to her, several MDAs have vast land not being put to use for decades which could make a huge difference if used for mass housing for Lagos residents.

Adejobi, who assumed office in Lagos last month, further promised to collaborate with all stakeholders to make Lagos a better place.

NNPC MD Charges Staff to Sustain Profitability Trend

The Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Malam Mele Kyari, has charged the staff of the petroleum corporation to work hard to sustain the profitability trend as Nigerians will no longer condone losses from the Corporation.

Kyari at a Town hall meeting which was held in Abuja, assured that the corporation would continue to imbibe the best practices.

He applauded the staff for breaking the profitability jinx, adding that things cannot be the same with the Corporation again, especially with the passage of the Petroleum Industry Act which mandated it to run under the Company and Allied Matters Act.

He stressed that a back slide into losses for three consecutive years would mean liquidation for the Corporation while noting that the principles that propelled the Corporation from loss into profitability include cost control, transparency, ethical conduct among others.

He further urged staff to desist from every conduct that could prove inimical to the progress of the Corporation by either reporting such directly to him or deploying any of the whistle-blowing platforms that have been activated by the Corporation.
