Metro Fuel Price Hike: NLC, FG Resumes Parley Talks



The Nigeria Labour Congress led by Mr. Ayuba Wabba and the Federal Government will resume the suspended talks on the N145 fuel pump price on today, Wednesday, 25th, May 2016.

The Director in charge of Press at the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Mr. Samuel Olowookere, said in a statement on Tuesday that the meeting would hold by 2pm at the Conference Hall of Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.


An invitation to the NLC to return to the negotiation table over the contentious increase in electricity tariff and the fuel pump price was delayed on Monday by the Ministry of Labour as a result of a scheduled meeting with the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, which served a week-old strike notice on the government.

The NLC had called off the indefinite strike it called to protest fuel price hike on Sunday as a result of the intervention of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola TInubu.
