Fuel Subsidy Removal: NLC Fixes Feb 1, 2022 For Nationwide Protest

Date:

Emerging report reveals that the National Executive Council, NEC, of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has fixed February 1, 2022 as a day to hold nationwide protest against fuel subsidy removal.

The decision was contained in a communique issued in Abuja and signed by the NLC President, Mr Ayuba Wabba and General Secretary, Mr Emmanuel Ugboaja, following their NEC meeting.

The NLC noted that before the national protest, the Labour union would hold protest rallies in all the 36 States of Nigeria on January 27 against the subsidy removal.

The communique added that the removal of the fuel subsidy would expose Nigerian workers and the citizenry to acute deprivation and worsen the hyper-inflation trend in Nigeria.

It said: “The NEC, therefore, resolved to reject and resist the planned increase in the pump price of petrol by the Federal Government, as it’s extremely insensitive to the acute hardship being experienced by Nigerian workers and people.

”Pursuant to its rejection and resistance to further increase in the price of petrol, we are to organize protest rallies in all the 36 States of the Federation on January 27, 2022.

“This would culminate in the submission of protest letters to all the 36 State Governors. Subsequently, a National Protest will take place on February 1, 2022, in Abuja.

“In case the Government decides to announce new petrol prices before the proposed protests, the protest will kick-off instantly and without any further notice in every State of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory.”
