Senate Leader, Chief Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN, representing Cross River Central senatorial district, yesterday advised the Federal Government to always keep any agreement entered into with labor unions to save the country from sufferings and hardships occasioned by incessant strikes.

The Senate leader, who gave the advice while reacting to the strike embarked upon by the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, as well as Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, and Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP, told industrial unions to find a better way of resolving problems with government.

NUPENG had suspended its services on Monday in a three-day warning strike to demand for rights for workers in major oil companies, higher pay from their employers as well as repair of dilapidated roads the union members use in moving fuel products. ASUU downed tools over alleged inability of the Federal Government to keep to the 2009 agreement it entered into with the latter.

Speaking with Vanguard, Ndoma-Egba said incessant strikes were uncalled for and had become undesirable.

He said: “The strikes are totally uncalled for. The unions should look for more ingenious ways of resolving issues. Strikes are getting very daring.”

On the side of government, he said “government should always keep to whatever agreements it entered into with unions.”
The Senate leader, appealed to the unions to call off their industrial actions and try other methods of resolving issues they had with the government.

He assured that the National Assembly would wade into the matter by making appeals to the relevant bodies involved to save the country from the pains of the strike.
