NLC to meet with FG over fuel Subsidy removal
Post created on 1:04 pm
The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and representatives of the federal government are to meet today over the planned removal of petrol subsidy.
This was disclosed by the NLC national president, Joe Ajaero on Wednesday on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme,
Ajaero said that the meeting will hold by 2 pm today.
“Government seems to have shown interest in discussion. As at last night, they reached out and we have fixed 2pm today to commence discussions,” Ajaero said.
“There, all these other issues will be discussed because you cannot just say ‘no subsidy’ and then, you are not producing and you leave us to the fabrics of the market.”
“The pronouncement by Mr. President is as good as law and if in the process we make a law that is not practicable, the same people that made the law can look at it,” Ajaero said.
“Does it bring pleasure to us to say subsidy is gone and people start suffering? Is it not part of leadership for us to look at how the suffering of the people can be reduced?”
