The Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kwara chapter, Mr Murtala Olayinka has urged the government at all levels to find means of easing the economic hardship of Nigerians.
Olayinka said this while speaking to journalists on the plights of civil servants in Kwara.
He noted that many civil servants had resorted to trekking to their various offices because of the scarcity of cash as they had no money for transportation and to purchase Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) for their vehicles.
Olayinka also urged the Kwara government to liase with appropriate authorities to release old notes into circulation to ease the hardships faced by people.
He, however, urged the government at all levels to intervene in price control to save Nigerians from extortion and also lamented the poor minimum wage, saying that the salary could no longer address the fast increasing prices of commodities in the market.
