Tinubu is currently reviewing this proposal, and an official announcement is expected soon.

This development follows a recent strike by labour unions, which began on Monday after their meeting with the National Assembly leadership failed to produce a satisfactory outcome.

The strike disrupted economic activities nationwide, leading to the closure of international airports, schools, courts, banks, and hospitals.

Members of the organised labour comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress, on Tuesday, suspended their strike for five days.
