Misoprostol ordered without a perscription It would be difficult for the Academic Staff union of Universities (ASUU) to call off its ongoing industrial action according to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC). Ayuba Wabba, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), said this when he presented the position of the union on the six bills to transform the agency sector before the Senate Committee on Aviation.

He said ASUU could not call off the strike when the issue under consideration still lingered.

Asked if NLC would advise ASUU to resume while negotiations continues,  Wabba said, “That is not how negotiations are done.”

“ If before the action commences,  we were able to reach a negotiation, then we would have resolved the issues.

“We are already on the action before those issues arose. I don’t think that is the best way to go. Government should show enough commitment to resolve the issue once and for all.”


On the fuel hike, Wabba said, “What we said in our agreement is that all the palliatives must be implemented with time line and that has not been done.

“We have since communicated to government and our next line of action would also be communicated to Nigerians”

Speaking on the aviation bills, Wabba urged the Senate to look into some areas which the NLC was not comfortable with.

He cited the case of replacing authority with administration in the nomenclature of the Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria.

He also kicked against the provision for interim board members in the management of the aviation agencies.

Apart from that, he said that the organised labour had discovered that the bills did not address the issues of industrial relations, professionalism, and workers core interest were not accommodated in the bills.

He also faulted plans to designate the aviation sector as essential services.

The Senator Smart Adeyemi-led committee promised to look into the concerns raised by the NLC but pledged to add values to the bills.
