Plan To Declare Strike Over Withdrawal Of Fuel Subsidy, False -NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress, has described as false the report that it has declared a strike that will begin on Friday over the recent withdrawal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government.

NLC Head of Information and Public Affairs, Mr Benson Upah, said this on Thursday in Abuja in reaction to the viral claims that the Labour Congress has declared a strike that will begin on Friday over the subsidy removal.

While urging members of the public to disregard stories in the rumour mill that it would call workers out on strike from June 2, NLC said the stories did not emanate from the congress.

“Our attention has been drawn to stories circulating in the social media claiming that the NLC would begin protest action on June 2 against the increase in the pump price of petrol.

“In as much as we are outraged by this mindless price increase which is intended to bring untold hardship to Nigerians, we have no plan to start any action on June 2.

“What we do have for now are organ meetings slated for June 2 to deliberate on the price issue,’’ he stated.

Upah assured that the NLC would keep Nigerians informed on its next line of action after its meetings. (NAN)
