Price hike will lead to crisis - TUC | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


The Trade Union Congress (TUC) yesterday cautioned the government against an increase in the price of petrol,.

It said such move would be an open invitation to crisis. President and Secretary General of the congress, Comrade Bobboi Bala Kaigama and Comrade Simeso Amachree, in a statement said: “The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) views the recent statement credited to the Group General Manager, Crude Oil Marketing Department of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mr. Mele Kyari, that “the nation’s difficult business environment may make it difficult to sustain the current pump price of petrol” as highly insensitive and an open invitation to revolution in Nigeria.

“The Congress is surprised that the management of an organisation as important as the NNPC regularly contradicts itself, with members thereof speaking from both sides of the mouth.

“We care little about whose responsibility it is to make the sector optimally functional, be it the NNPC or the marketers or whoever. All we are saying is, “NO FURTHER PRICE HIKE.”

“We shall not tolerate infliction of more pain on Nigerians; we kick against closure of more factories; and we hold the government responsible for insecurity, crime and other vices. They should stop telling us they feel our pain when all they do is to make it worse”

  1. Clueless govt run by incompitent fools

  2. From the moment I saw the lost of ministers buhari selected, I new d country was in a big problem. Non of them except for fashola is competent or qualified. The ministers that performed very well in GEJ administration were young proffessionals with work experiences from outside d country. Buhari went and carried lawyers and put everywhere as if they know everything. Shame on buhari. I tot he new what he wants. From d speeches given by Peter obi and how he saved money in anambra state by now a well thinking government would have extended hand of fellowship to him handle one area of government and charge him use the anambra model. Anambra seem to be the only state right now that is not suffering like others becos Peter obi saved over 75b naira.
