BREAKING: NLC Finally Meets FG Over Petrol Subsidy Removal

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is currently meeting the representatives of the federal government team. The meeting is due to the fallout over the petrol subsidy removal.

Joe Ajaero, president of the NLC, and his team arrived at the presidential villa at about 5:45 pm on Monday.

Politics Nigeria reports that the NLC was absent at Sunday’s government representatives and organised labour meeting. 

However, representatives of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) were in attendance.

During his inauguration speech on May 29, President Bola Tinubu declared that “petrol subsidy is gone”.

The president’s pronouncement immediately led to a resurfacing of queues at petrol stations and a hike in the pump price of the product across the country.

Organised labour had subsequently met with the government team, but the sit-down ended in deadlock and was rescheduled for Monday, June 5.
