The Nigeria Police Force, NPF, has beefed up security nationwide against the national strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC and urged the organised labour to halt the strike and return to the negotiation meetings with the Federal Government.

In a statement available to newsmen in Abuja by the Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Monday the Police explained that halting the strike would prevent a breakdown of law and order within the country.

The Police pointed out that through negotiations, both parties would resolve the issue amicably as the industrial action might bring untold hardship to Nigerians.

The statement however assured the public “that ample deployments have been made across the country to ensure that citizens can go about their lawful duties without hindrance, adding that “all members of the public are encouraged to remain calm and continue with their lawful daily activities, while organized labour is urged to act responsibly and in accordance with the law, prioritizing dialogue and legal avenues to resolving the existing grievances.
