JUST IN: NLC threatens fresh indefinite strike over petrol price increase

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has threatened a total, comprehensive, and everlasting nationwide shutdown if the pump price of fuel is increased from the current N617 per litre, which it characterizes as illegal.

This comes after reports that oil marketers aim to raise the pump price of fuel from the current rate to between N680 and N720 per litre in the coming weeks if the dollar continues to trade at between N910 and N950 per litre on the parallel market.

This announcement was made by NLC President Joe Ajaero at the African Trade Union Alliance meeting on Monday, August 14, 2023, in Abuja.

This is coming barely 10 days after the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) suspended its nationwide protest and industrial action over the removal of fuel subsidy following a meeting with President Bola Tinubu.

The organized labour also warned the Federal Government against undermining the union’s demands.
