The traditional ruler of Igando, Oba Lasis Gbadomosi, has appealed to the NLC and TUC to suspend the ongoing national strike over fuel subsidy removal for peace to reign in the country.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, Gbadamosi appealed to the organised labour to give the Federal Government three months to provide the promised infrastructure and improved power supply.
“If the FG fails to deliver at a given time, then let NLC and TUC resume the strike.
“When a leader promises to execute projects for the people like the case on ground, we should be able to give them the opportunity.
“If they fail to keep their promise, they should be held responsible. Three months trial period to the Federal government will suffice to test their sincerity.”
The traditional ruler also enjoined youths not to take the law into their hands.
Meanwhile, youths from the Oko-Philips bus stop in the area have also protested the five-day power outage in the area, saying that it had paralysed social and economic activities.
NAN reports that the youths besieged the Igando 133 KVA sub-station only to discover that there was a major breakdown at the Egbe-Ejigbo 33 KVA sub-stations.
