The dialogue , which was meant to take updates on the implementation of resolutions reached during the three previous meetings, ended abruptly barely 10 minutes after it commenced at the Presidential Villa banquet hall , Abuja .


The meeting had started at 8 : 18 pm when the Trade Union Congress President , Quadri Olaleye , raised the issue of the latest hike in fuel pump price from N 160 to N 170 .


He accused the government of insincerity , stating that the meeting must record progress otherwise , the labour leaders would walk out of the parley , adding that they were beginning to lose confidence in the government .
