Fuel hike: Nigeria Labour Congress Threatens Fresh Strike
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on August 14, 2023
The Organised Labour has vowed to proceed with a total, comprehensive and indefinite nationwide shutdown of the country, should there be another increase in Petrol Pump price from the existing six hundred and Seventeen naira, which it describes as “illegal”.
NLC President, Joe Ajaero, gave the notification on Monday, at the African Trade Union alliance meeting in Abuja, where organised labour also warned against undermining the demands of the union.
It could be recalled that oil marketers on Sunday indicated that the cost of Premium Motor Spirit, popularly called petrol, would rise to between six hundred and eighty naira per liter and seven hundred and twenty naira per litre in the coming weeks should the dollar continue to trade from nine hundred and ten naira to nine hundred and fifty naira at the parallel market.
