NLC kicks against Subsidy removal

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has warned that those pushing for subsidy removal in Nigeria are out to set the country on fire.

The warning came against the backdrop of an announcement that the outgoing administration of President Muhammadu Buhari had left the decision of petrol subsidy removal to the incoming government.

Secretary General of NLC, Mr. Emma Ugboaja, who was speaking in Lagos said nobody should drag Nigerian masses and workers into any increase in fuel price in the name of subsidy removal, insisting that organized labour will not accept it.

According to Mr. Ugboaja, the focus should be on the local refining of petroleum products and not subsidy removal.
