Strike: Tense wait for NLC’s response to Court ruling


By John Eche


There is a tense wait for the response of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC and its affiliates and allies to the ruling of a Nigerian Industrial Court disallowing labour from embarking on a scheduled nationwide strike to protest the recent hike in fuel prices, The Difference reports.

The strike had been planned to begin on Wednesday.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had in his inauguration address on May 29th proclaimed that subsidy is gone.

Thereafter the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited, NNPCL, the sole suppliers of the influential Premium Motor Spirit, PMS product used by motorists all over the country, had adjusted the cost of the product in all of its depots, leading to a consequent spike in transportation and other costs.
