The meeting between the Federal Government and the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, over the withdrawal of fuel subsidy ended without a consensus being reached.
Dele Alake, President Bola Tinubu’s spokesman, made the announcement on Wednesday while briefing journalists on the outcome of the meeting between the federal government and the NLC.
Alake said talks between the Labour union and the government will resume at a later date.
On Wednesday, the Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPCL, confirmed an increase in the pump price of premium motor spirit, or fuel, at its retail outlets across the country, saying the price adjustments were in keeping with current realities.
The development came as a result of President Bola Tinubu’s inauguration speech, in which he declared removal of fuel subsidy.
However, the NLC rejected the new price system as absurd and urged its immediate removal.
Meanwhile, the presidential spokesperson said the government would continue to negotiate with organized labor in order to arrive at an equitable solution that is in the best interests of all Nigerians.
“We cannot go into details at this time because talks are ongoing.” We can’t finish everything in one sitting. We have now adjourned.
“We will resume talks at a later date, very shortly.” The key thing is that talks are ongoing. It is always preferable to continue discussing in order to reach an agreeable solution that is in the best interest of all Nigerians.
