Subsidy removal’ll set Nigeria on fire, NLC warns govt

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has warned that those pushing for subsidy removal in Nigeria are out to set the country on fire.

The warning came against the backdrop of an announcement that the outgoing government of President Muhammadu Buhari had left the decision of petrol subsidy removal to the incoming government.

According to NLC, the focus should be on the local refining of petroleum products and not subsidy removal.

General Secretary of NLC, Emma Ugboaja, in a chat in Lagos yesterday, said nobody should drag Nigerian masses and workers into any increase in fuel price in the name of subsidy removal, insisting that organized labour will not accept it.
