nigeria labour congress 2

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC may by heading for a showdown with the incoming administration of Mohammadu Buhari if its threat to seek upward review of the N18,000 minimum wage is anything to go by

The NLC also warned against attempt to remove oil subsidy through the back door, insisting that workers would be mobilised to resist move to increase the current price of petroleum products

Deputy  President of the Union, Comrade Peters Adeyemi spoke in Abuja while briefing newsmen on Programmes lined up for the NLC and the TUC to celebrate the 2015 May Day in Abuja with the theme: “The Working Class, Democratic Consolidation and Economic Revival; Charting the Way to a National Rebirth”.

It will be recalled that the National Assembly has recently passed the 2015 appropriation bill without making any provision for the subsidy on petrol.  How the new government will be able to sustain the current pump price of petrol without susbsidising the importation or how government can go on and subsidise without legislative provision for the spending, will be left to be seen.
