The National Industrial Court has asked the Nigeria Labour Congress to suspend its planned strike.
Babatunde Adejumo, president of the court, gave the order on Tuesday.
Ruling on an exparte application filed by Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF), Adejumo ordered parties to maintain the status quo until the hearing and determination of the exparte motion.
He also directed the government to dialogue with the NLC towards an amicable resolution of their dispute.
