NLC Orders Jonathan To Revert Petrol Price To N65 / Litre

nlc orders jonathan to revert petrol price to 65 naira

Feb 22, 2012 – NLC Orders Jonathan To Revert Petrol Price To N65 / Litre

The leadership of Nigeria Labor Congress has ordered President Goodluck Jonathan to revert petrol price to N65/litre or face another round of showdown (On-Your-Own).

President Jonathan has said the implementation of the palliative measures proposed to cushion the effect of the removal was no longer feasible because it was based on 100% removal of subsidy on local consumption of fuel.

This Subsidy Removal Programme (un-SURE) is developed with the expectation that we were going to completely deregulate the Downstream sector of the oil industry, the 100 per cent removal of subsidy… we will still come up with a document based on what we get,” he said while addressing chieftains of PDP during their NEC meeting in Abuja on Monday.

Backing his decision, the Leader of the Senate, Victor Ndoma-Egba said; “The President said he wanted to remove subsidy, Nigerians said they don’t want it removed. Now that he was not able to realize his plan, where will he get the money to carry out that policy?

The President will have to look at the proceeds from partial deregulation and work with what is saved. That is the reason why the document earlier produced should be revised to reflect the current realities.”

Should any serious minded person take NLC serious again? They had the opportunity to make him revert the price in the first place, and they bungled it. Now they want to call workers out on strike again after those untold hardships and untimely deaths, they must be kidding. (punch)Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

    The N.L.C Leader is old let him resign and the masses should not protest with them let the innocent nigerian ghost who died protest with them God wil judge nigerian leaders u lead wrongly. Jonathan has not redeemed the pledge which he promised them this time around let gun be distributed to the masses so that we can show our leaders that we’re not happy about them, if everybody is like me i don’t think there wil be voting in nigeria at all let power return to millitary so that if u rule anyhow then the bullet wil rule u let everybody support my word 2015 no vote 4 any politian our democracy 4rm 1999 has no meaning let FG open one big hotel in each state atleast that is the sign of employment than to promise from 2007 til now no single transformation rather it’s deformation.

    NLC must be sick in the head for thinking that people will listed to them again. They caused people untold hardship, death and even their jobs, only to desert them after settling with the government for their own personal financial benefits. How did they ever get the courage to mention the word N65/litre? They think that Nigerians are stupid and brainless people that they can manipulate as they want and or use at their beckon and call. They are wrong because the common Nigerians will not listen to the this time. It looks like there is an aspect of their own personal negotiation with the government that they forgot and they want an opportunity to go back to Aso rock to conclude this.
    Sorry NLC you are on your own this time because you are a total disgrace.
