The National Association of Nigerian Traders (NANTS) has urged its members not to participate in the strike action being championed by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).

The admonition was given by the group’s National President, Barrister Kenneth Ukaoha in Abuja on Tuesday, May 17, 2016.

“To us the only way to do this is perhaps to do away completely with subsidy and so we applaud its disappearance in the 2016 budget. NANTS therefore commends the move by government in removing the fuel subsidy, and hopes it will forever remain buried,” he said.

“We equally hope that by government’s action, Nigerians would no longer be held by the jugular by independent marketers and those in the oil sector who have hijacked and made a mockery of the “fuel subsidy” regime with corrupt practices that have plundered the commonwealth of the people,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has said that it’s not participating in the NLC strike.
