Fuel Hike: No backpedaling protesting, fight: NLC

 No backpedaling protesting, fight says NLC.



The Nigeria Labor congress has promised to continue with its arranged hit and dissent with impact from Sept 28th after the disappointment of the government to switch the climb in fuel and power duty. 

Rising from its National Executive council meeting in Abuja today, the NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, said the proposed action would begin next week. 

He expressed the choice was consistently taken by the 36 state directors and FCT parts of the NLC.

The Nigeria Labour Congress has pledged to fight with its scheduled strike and demonstration with impact from September 28 despite the inability of the Federal Govt to overturn the increase in energy tariff and fuel price.

No backpedaling protesting

Increasing from its Executive Council Committee meeting in Abuja just several moments earlier, the NLC Speaker, Ayuba Wabba, said the financial forecast by the labour unions would begin next week.

He noted that perhaps the resolution was collectively adopted by the board members of the 36 states and FCT sections of the NLC.

Meanwhile, the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria confirms it also delayed its expected national demonstration planned for Sept. 23 till Sept. 28.

Mr Gbenga Ekundayo, Chairman of the Lagos State Council, said, "TUC's ending of today's (22 September) ultimatum; whereas, it is the 28 September NLC's termination.

"There are however, two ultimates and it can not be the way the labor movement works; so we ought to harmonize our moves together.
