Nigerian union members call off strike over petrol price rises

Nigerian union members on Sunday called off a national strike over a 67-percent hike in petrol prices and said they would resume talks with the government. Elements of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) walked out of negotiations last week and ordered the stoppage, despite a court injunction and the threat of police sanction. The trade unionists were unhappy at a government decision to raise petrol from 86.50 naira ($0.43, 0.38 euros) to 145 naira per litre.
