FCT, Abuja – The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has dismissed the report that it was ready to begin industrial action on Friday, June 2, against the withdrawal of the fuel subsidy by the federal government.
Benson Upah, the Head of Information and Public Affairs of the NLC, dismissed the report on Thursday, June 1, in Abuja, while reacting to the claim that the labor union has declared an industrial action that will begin on Friday over the removal of subsidy, PM News reported.
Fuel subsidy is a form of government intervention to reduce the cost of fuel by giving direct financial support to oil companies, thus, subsidise the product to consumers
NLC clarifies report of going on strike over fuel subsidy removal
Upah urged members of the public to disregard the report which he described as a rumor mill that would ask his members to go on strike from June 2. He added that the story did not come from the NLC.
The union spokesperson noted that the story has been going viral on social media, which it knows nothing about it. His statement reads in part:
“In as much as we are outraged by this mindless price increase which is intended to bring untold hardship to Nigerians, we have no plan to start any action on June 2.”
Latest about Bola Tinubu, NLC, Fuel Subsidy removal, Fuel Scarcity
However, the NLC disclosed that the union would be meeting on Friday to discuss the fuel subsidy removal by President Bola Tinubu.
According to Upa, the NLC would inform Nigerians about its next plan after its meeting on Friday. On Monday, President Tinubu announced that “fuel subsidy is gone” because there was no provision for it in the 2023 budget beyond June 2023. But the oil marketers have since increased the price of the commodity while some petrol stations are shut.
Bola Tinubu: President may go after Bureau De Change if he wins against subsidy
Fedpolygist earlier reported that President Bola Tinubu hit the ground running on Monday when in his inaugural speech, he reiterated a promise he made to Nigerians while campaigning for presidency.
Upon delivering his speech, oil marketers kicked the president for pronouncing that fuel subsidy is gone, and they closed many filling stations and inflated the price of petrol. However, if Tinubu succeeds in removing the fuel subsidy, Bureau De Change operators are likely to be his next target as regards reforms.

Nigerians fume as young boy who was promised heaven and earth during presidential election is neglected
In what appears to be a disheartening turn of events, Nigerians are expressing their disappointment as the young election hero, whose viral video of chasing Peter Obi’s convoy captivated the nation, has allegedly been left empty-handed despite grand promises made during the presidential election campaign.
The incident has reignited debates over the credibility of campaign pledges and the treatment of citizens who actively participate in political processes.
During the presidential elections campaign, the young boy was promised a myriad of rewards ranging from scholarships abroad to substantial financial compensation.
These assurances were intended to recognize and appreciate his bold act of running after the convoy of Peter Obi, the former vice-presidential candidate, in a fervent display of support.
However, five months have elapsed since the general elections took place, and the promised rewards have failed to materialize, leaving the young election hero disillusioned and causing Nigerians to voice their grievances.
Social media platforms have been inundated with expressions of frustration, highlighting the broken trust between politicians and the electorate.
