According to Ngige, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), all institutions handling the finances of the government and their affiliates would be present at the meeting.

“The invitation is going out to them this afternoon (yesterday) – to the Nigeria Labour Congress, the Trade Union Congress and their affiliates or supporters and friends in the civil society organisations.

“At the meeting, government finances, challenges and everything will be laid bare on the table. Their own fears and what they think is also good for the Nigerian people, especially the workers, they will also table it so that we look at it,” he said.
