NLC calls for national dialogue to address economic challenges

FACTIONAL leader of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, has called on the Federal Government to organise a national dialogue that would address the country’s economic challenges.

Ajaero, who fielded questions from journalists in Lagos, on Wednesday, said such a national dialogue should include the organised labour and civil society groups in the country.

According to him, Nigerians needed concrete steps to rekindle their hope and help them stand together collectively to weather the economic storm.

The union leader said the president should address the people to reassure them of government’s programmes and actions, with guarantees of meeting stated timelines.

“This will help rebuild the people’s confidence and trust and make them buy into government’s policies and programmes,” he said.
