Petrol price hike: NLC to begin nationwide strike Wednesday



14 May 2016, Lagos — BARING any last minute alteration, organised labour and its civil society allies have resolved to shut down Nigeria from Wednesday, May 18, over the hike in the pump price of petrol announced by the federal government last Wednesday.

You may recall that the Federal Government on Wednesday announced a new pricing regime that took the pump price of petrol from N86.50k per litre to N145 per liter.

It was gathered that labour leaders will not later than Sunday send a letter to the government demanding a total reversal to the N86.50 pump price of petrol before 12 am on Wednesday, falling which all economic and others would be shut from Wednesday.
