Post-subsidy talks: Reps vow to protect vulnerable Nigerians


Ahead of the planned strike by labour unions, the House of Representatives has promised to protect vulnerable Nigerians.

The House made this known on Sunday through the Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Akin Remi.

The Nigeria Labour Congress and affiliated unions are currently preparing for a potential nationwide strike, following the end of a 21-day ultimatum given to the Federal Government.

The unions demanded the provision of palliatives to alleviate the impact of the recent fuel subsidy removal by President Bola Tinubu.

Following this, the organised labour embarked on a two-day warning strike and protests to emphasise their demands.

During the protests, the leadership of the NLC and Trade Union marched to the National Assembly.

The Senate Chief Whip, Ali Ndume (APC, Borno South), thereafter met with the protesting labour unions, and pleaded with them to call off the nationwide protest and give the Senate one week to intervene.
