Dele Alake, the Special Adviser to the President on Communication and Strategy, released a statement shortly after the meeting in which the labour leaders decided to call an end to the strike because they had faith in the President’s ability to promote an open and sincere discussion of all the issues raised by the labour movement.
According to Alake, the union leaders decided to pursue positive dialogue with the government in order to resolve any lingering problems that have an impact on Nigerians in general and the working class in particular.
He claims that after the ongoing rehabilitation contract between the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) and an Italian company, Maire Tecnimont SpA, is completed, President Tinubu promised the labour leaders that the Port Harcourt refineries would begin operating by December 2023.
He also pointed out that President Tinubu pleaded with the Labour leaders to join forces with him in creating a better and more prosperous nation while giving them assurances that he would continue to strive for Nigeria’s best interests.
