Lagos Guardian newspaper back on the streets Monday

Lagos- Nigeria (PANA) -- Publishers of Nigeria's leading privately-owned newspaper, The Guardian, announced Friday that the Lagos-based paper returns to the streets Monday, after its workers called off their 10-day strike Thursday.
"The Guardian, your favourite newspaper, will be back on the news-stands on Monday, July 23, 2001," the newspaper's management said in a newspaper advertisement Friday.
"We are rightfully assured that with our internal, family crisis now behind us, The Guardian, the product of our collective effort, will be richer, tastier and as compelling and authoritative as ever," it said.
The local chapter of the National Union of Printing, Publishing and Paper Products Workers (NUPPPROW), called the strike to protest poor pay and demand better conditions of service at the 18-year-old newspaper.
The action was called off following an agreement brokered by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
