BREAKING: NLC To Begin Nationwide Strike August 2 Over Fuel Price Hike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has given the federal government seven days ultimatum to revert to the old fuel pump price or a nationwide wide strike action will commence on August 2, 2023.


This decision is a result of the NLC’s displeasure with the government following the announcement of the sum of N8,000 as palliative by the government to curtail the effect of the subsidy on Nigerians.


Recall that THE WHISTLER had reported that the NLC said the payment of N8,000 to 12 million Nigeria was an insult and mockery to the congress.


At the NLC’s Central Working Committee, CWC, meeting held Tuesday, July 25, at Abuja Labour House, the decision to embark on nationwide strike action was approved.
