He said the union would only change its position if the Nigerian government addressed the issues of the hikes in petrol price and electricity tariffs hike.

When reminded of a court order restraining the union from proceeding with the planned strike, Wanna said the union was yet to be served with the order.

He pointed out that there was a ruling of a Federal High court stopping the increase of electricity tariff, but that the government refused to obey the order.

He reiterated that the strike would only not go on as fixed if the government made a u-turn before 12 midnight.
