Fresh crisis looms as the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC declares a two-day warning strike over the impact of petrol subsidy removal on the masses.
According to the NLC, the strike is to commence on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.
President Bola Tinubu‘s declaration to end petrol subsidy within his first hour in office tripled the price of petrol from N197 per litre to N617.
NLC had staged a nationwide protest to call on the government not to plunge the masses into more hardship.
In a bid to calm the nerves of Labour, president Bola Tinubu had hosted Labour leaders at the Presidential Villa in Abuja over the matter.
