NLC Says No Protest Against Fuel Subsidy For Now

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says it has no plan to hold any nationwide protest on Friday against the present hike in price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS)  caused by subsidy removal.

The Congress said though it was outraged by what it described as “mindless price increase which is intended to bring untold hardship to ordinary Nigerians” no protest yet.

Comrade Joe Ajaero, President of NLC, in a statement on Thursday signed by the Congress’ Head of Information Unit, Benson Upah, reacted to reports in some quarters that the organised labour had scheduled a protest for Friday.
The meeting between the organised labour and the federal government representatives on Wednesday at the State House, Abuja, on the removal of subsidy ended in a stalemate as no agreement was reached.

Clarifying the labour’s position, Ajaero explained that the union would hold meetings t (Friday) to deliberate on the issue.

He said, “Our attention has been drawn to stories circulating in the social media space claiming that the Nigeria Labour Congress would commence protest action tomorrow (Friday, June 2nd) against the increase in the pump price of PMS.

“In as much as we are outraged by this mindless price increase which is intended to bring untold hardship to ordinary Nigerians, we have no plan to start any action tomorrow.
“What we do have for now are organ meetings slated for tomorrow, Friday, June 2nd, 2023 to deliberate on the price issue. We promise to keep Nigerians informed on our next line of action after our meetings.

“In light of this, we advise the public to disregard these stories. They did not emanate from the Congress.”

  1. They've lost their essence na, what can they say? E lo jo ko jor!

  2. Worker are suffering to survive, if you like talk on their behalf.

  3. Na una sabi cuz no protest done is made for the masses.

    It's just for ur own pocket, I know this before now

  4. Is NLC still effective in this country Sha?

  5. They are not for the masses again but themselves.

  6. Obi said he will revive subsidy on day one and he was applauded and supported by the same NLC leadership. Now that Tinubu is the one who took the bull by the horns, Ajaero wants to sit at home. The last lecturers strike was a clear lesson only if you are wise. NLC will lose it's public goodwill if their only contribution after a good nine months is to make things worse.
