Wabba Explains Why NLC Won’t Protest Hike In Petrol And Electricity Tariffs Yet
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has come out to state that the organised labour will soon come out with a position on the recent increases in prices of fuel and electricity.
Ayuba Wabba, NLC President, made this known while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Saturday.
Recall that the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) increased the pump price from N145 to N151.60 per litre.
Also, electricity tariff was increased effective September 1 by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) from N30.23 per one kWh to N62.33.
Reacting to the development, Wabba expressed that the organised labour would not protest until the Central Working Committee met and agreed on appropriate action.
