TUC tells FG to not increase fuel price

06 September 2016, 21:23

Abuja - The Trade Union Congress has urged Federal Government to not increase the price of petrol as this will improve the lives of Nigerian's, Vanguard reported.

This comes after the Nigeria Labour Congress proposed of a petrol price increase in a News24 article.

TUC President, Bobboi Kaigama, stated in Lagos that the proposed increase of N145 should be resisted.

Kagama further states that "the economy is already on it's knees and suggest government reduce the cost of governance."

The call of minimum wage review for workers had not been settled therefore the organisation feels it would be unfair to increase the price.

Government has been urged to enhance local production and build more refineries to maintain the stability of foreign exchange.
