Fuel Scarcity

(Business Day)

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has threatened to go on strike if the ongoing fuel scarcity is not urgently addressed.

The NLC gave the warning on Monday, April 4, 2016, adding that it would demonstrate against public officers who have not been performing as expected.

“Electricity has become an essential commodity, public utilities have since gone to the dogs, petroleum products have grown wings and vanished, compounding an already bad transport system, reducing Nigerians in all parts of the nation to compulsory trekkers,” the NLC said.

“Having observed the increasing alarm and seeming confusion within the corridors of power on possible solutions to the socio-economic quagmire, we make haste to say that Nigeria is indeed at crossroads today and the extent of suffering is such that this nation has not witnessed throughout its history.

“We, therefore, want the government at the centre to quickly talk to Nigerian workers and the masses on why we should continue having trust and patience with them.

“We urge them to tell us why we should not be in the streets calling for mass resignations of officers of this government, and to also tell us why we should not be worried when all the macro-economic indices are moving downwards,” NLC added.

The organization also urged the government to focus on getting the refineries working.
