Abuja - The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have asked the Federal Government to further reduce the price of petrol in the country, Punch reports.
The unions asked the federal government to come out with a more realistic template for determining the right cost of a litre of petrol in the country.
They argued that the N10 reduction was not substantial enough as it translated to only 10.3 per cent per litre as against the 33 per cent reduction in other countries.
The federal government announced a cut in petrol prices, a month before the 2015 general elections.
Oil minister Diezani Alison-Madueke said that the price of a litre of petrol would drop from 97 naira to 87 naira on Sunday.
