The Ogun Muslim Council, OMC, has renewed the call for the review of International Labour Law to mandate employers and employees to engage in “round table” discussions as a sustainable option for resolving industrial disputes.

The OMC Secretary General, Alhaji Kamaldeen Akintunde made the call in a statement in Abeokuta while reacting to the recent industrial action of the organized labour over the National minimum wage.

While encouraging the organized labour to heed the voice of reason and wisdom by embracing the intervention of well-meaning Nigerians and stakeholders across various sectors, the religious body also urged the Federal Government to be open to negotiations and not remain obstinate regarding labour’s demands.

Recounting the effects of the strike action on the social economic activities in the country especially on the airlift of pilgrims to Makkah and Madinah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, OMC called for maturity and understanding from the Labour movement during this critical time. 

The OMC, while lamenting the current economic hardship and inflation that have caused significant suffering among Nigerians, advised families and individuals to adjust their economic plans to align with the present realities.
