FG Set to Meet Nigeria Labour Congress Over Fuel Subsidy Removal


Federal Government Representatives are expected to meet with the Leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) today by 2pm over the planned removal of fuel subsidy.

This was disclosed by the NLC National President, Joe Ajaero, earlier today.

According to Ajaero, the President should consult with relevant stakeholders to find out the implications of fuel subsidy removal on Nigerians on the streets as well as alternatives to help cushion the effect.

He further expressed displeasure over the pronouncement by President Bola Tinubu on the removal of fuel subsidy without consulting relevant stakeholders and putting in place adequate measures to cushion its effect on workers.

Ajaero state that the President’s pronouncement has devalued the quality of the lives of Nigerians by over 300 per cent and counting.

Meanwhile, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has said that the deregulation of the oil sector and subsidy removal is the only way to make Nigeria great.
