We Would Direct Workers To Stay At Home – Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)

2

Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), yesterday in Lagos, threatened to direct workers to stay at home should the current fuel scarcity continue.

In a statement released by the Joe Ajaero-led faction of Congress, lamented that with petroleum products’ prices as high as N350 per litre, claims and counter-claims between Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and marketers over so-called  N159 billion  subsidy payments and all state actors looking indifferent, the labour congress may have no choice but to direct workers to stay at home.

The statement, by Mr. Issa Aremu, a Deputy President of Ajaero faction of NLC said; “After several weeks of deliberate deprivations of petroleum products by both the government and marketers, with all the associated hardships, it is time all Nigerians stopped agonizing and rose in unison against the situation. With petroleum products’ prices as high as N350 per litre, (far above N87 per litre) claims and counter-claims between Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and marketers over so-called N159 billion subsidy payments and all state actors looking indifferent, Nigeria is the only country on earth  which unacceptably and criminally denies its citizens basic sources of energy, fuel and electricity.’’
