Federal Government’s representatives would meet with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) today by 2P.M over the planned removal of fuel subsidy.
Gatekeepers News reports that the NLC National President, Joe Ajaero, made the disclosure during an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday morning.
He said the position of Labour had been clear that even if President Bola Tinubu has good intentions, alternatives must be provided.
Ajaero said the President should have asked questions and found out the implications of fuel subsidy removal on Nigerians on the streets.
The NLC boss listed the alternatives to include the repair of the nation’s four refineries, provision of transportation of alternatives for the Nigerian workers, amongst others.
“The pronouncement by Mr President is as good as law and if in the process we make a law that is not practicable, the same people that made the law can look at it,” Ajaero said while calling for a review of the President’s pronouncement.
“Does it bring pleasure to us to say subsidy is gone and people start suffering? Is it not part of leadership for us to look at how the suffering of the people can be reduced?” he asked.
