The Nigeria Labour Congress and its affiliates have vowed to shut down the nation from Wednesday the 18th of May if the fuel price isn’t brought back down to the former price.BEARING any last minute.
There has been mixed reaction trailing the decision by the government to remove the subsidy on petroleum products and therefore hike the prices. It’s clear which side the NLC is on as they are said to be planning to give the government an ultimatum to reverse the decision and return prices to N86.50 or face dire consequences.
According to the Vanguard, labour leaders will not later than Sunday send a letter to government demanding a total reversal to the N86.50 pump price of petrol before 12 am on Wednesday. If this is complied with, they have promised to shut everything down.
