The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples' Democratic Party has thrown its weight behind the reported NLC strike action scheduled to commence on Wednesday, May 18, 2016.

In a statement by the party's Publicity Secretary, Malik Ibitoye, the party queried the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari to rescue Nigeria from the doldrum.

"We want to agree with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) that said in a statement that “the unilateral increase in prices of petroleum products today by government represents the height of insensitivity and impunity and shall be resisted by the NLC and its civil society allies,”the statement reads.

The statement further read, 'Our fears are that it would not stop at that as petrol price may go beyond N200 per litre in the next  few months because we could see the marketers jubilating that they have won the battle. 

'It added that with the unjustifiable electricity tariff and other economic challenges brought on by the devaluation of the naira and inflation, the least one had expected was another policy measure that would make life miserable for the ordinary Nigerian,' the statement read in full.

The Ogun State PDP has began firing salvos to the President Buhari led government since the emergence of the new executives of the state chapter.
