Consequently, NEC in session resolved and directed the Central Working Committee’s to mobilise members for a three-day warning strike slated to commence on 9th December 2020 through out all the nation’s ports, the objective being to draw the attention of the Federal Government to the urgent need for the repairs of the access roads.


This decision was conveyed to stakeholders and the public vide NEC’S communique of 4th December, 2020.


However, MWUN in a statement signed by its President General, Com. (Prince) Adeyanju Adewale, said many critical stakeholders such as the Nigeria Shippers Council, the Nigerian Ports Authority and other well-meaning Nigerians intervened.


“At the meeting held with the management of the Nigerian Ports Authority on Tuesday 8th December 2020, the issues contained in our communique were discussed and assurances of addressing the issue appropriately were given by the management of Nigerian Ports Authority as contained in the communique drawn after the meeting.


“Following from the foregoing, the Union called an emergency National Executive Council Meeting Today, 9th December 2020 and after due consideration of the assurances/commitment given by the Managing Director, Nigerian Ports Authority – Hajia Hadiza Bala Usman, the Union decided to suspend the three days warning strike.”
