NUPENG on Thursday urged Nigerians to disregard the ongoing strike called by a faction of NLC and go about their normal businesses.
Alhaji Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Chairman of NUPENG, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
Offices and other businesses in parts of the country have been going on unhindered in spite of the strike by a section of NLC on Monday.
The faction is protesting the new N145 per litre pump price of petrol as directed by the Federal Government.
Korodo said that the strike was not in the best interest of the country.
He said that what any union that stood for workers or masses should be doing now was to find ways of reaching agreements with government to make life better for workers.
“Nigerians should disregard NLC strike and continue with their business activities because it is a failure.
“What the unions should do now is to meet government and reach a compromise with them on how to increase workers take home.
“NLC should be meeting the government on the way forward and not bringing us backward,” he said.
