Fuel Subsidy: FG, NLC To Dialogue Amid Soaring Petrol Prices

The federal government and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) are set to meet on Wednesday over the announcement of the planned fuel subsidy removal by President Bola Tinubu.

The meeting was disclosed by NLC National President, Joe Ajaero and both parties will begin talks by 2 pm.

While making an appearance on Channels TV's Sunrise Daily on Wednesday, Ajaero revealed that other issues will also be discussed.

“Government seems to have shown interest in the discussion.

“As of last night, they reached out and we have fixed 2 pm today (Wednesday) to commence the discussion.

“There, all other issues will be discussed because you can’t just say there is no subsidy and then you are not producing and leave us to the vagaries of the market, to people who want to sell the product they bought for N10 for N100 to maximise profit. If there is no more garri, we must find out what to eat”, he stated.

“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.

“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?” he queried.
