Metro Fuel Price Hike: Labour Leaders Kick as FG Proposes N120/Litre [DailyPost]



In a bid to stop the strike action, the government during the dialogue meeting with the Labour unions last night proposed 120 per litre of fuel pump price.

A competent insider told DailyPost that the federal government during the meeting with the Ayuba Wabba-led NLC proposed N120 per litre but labour rejected, describing it as outrageous.

According to him, the presidency said the best they could do was to reduce the pump price by N25, in consideration of the outcries by Nigerians.


“That was why the meeting ended in deadlock. FG proposed N120 per litre but the NLC insisted of total reversal to the old price, which is N86 per litre.

“They were not ready to accept the outrageous proposal.

“The outcome of the meeting with the Joe Ajaero-led group would determine the next line of action,” the source who would not want his name mentioned told Dailypost.

Being an activist who belief in fairness with equity, The government is not fair enough to the masses. Where are the occupy Nigeria, Save Nigeria Group etc now. led by pastor Tunde Bakare is it now they all know that remover of fuel subsidy is the best. I want you to know that we don't have leaders. What i expect the government would have done is to re- brand the faulty process that led to leakages from subsidy payment. Not to remove the subsidy totally. Hike in price of fuel will automatically affect all other commodity where salary were not increase and cost of living is high. Please the poor masses are suffering.
