Fuel price: Labour expresses concern over ‘body language’ of marketers

Ayuba-Wabba, NLC president


31 August 2016, Sweetcrude, Abuja –  The Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, says the body language of petroleum products marketers in the country was pointing to another hike in the prices of products.

According to NLC President, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, and Secretary General, Dr. Peter Ozo-Ezon, marketers should not contemplate this option “in view of the incalculable damage any further increase in the pump price of petroleum products will cause”.

Expressing “concern at the body language of the oil marketers which points to the process of yet another round of increase in the pump price of petroleum products”, they warned that labour would resist any such move.

The Federal Government has clearly denied any such plan, but NLC at the end of an emergency Central Working Committee, CWC, meeting in Abuja, insisted it would not take any such plan lightly.
