Fuel Subsidy: FG Resumes Talks With NLC, TUC

The federal government on Monday resumed negotiations with both the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) over steps being taken to alleviate the suffering associated with the withdrawal of fuel subsidy by the administration of President Bola Tinubu.

NUJ and NLC had after meeting with representatives of government at the State House, Abuja a fortnight ago suspended its planned nationwide indefinite strike to protest last month’s withdrawal of fuel subsidy.

Monday’s meeting, which commenced by 5.20pm at the conference room of the Chief of Staff office at the State House, Abuja, is being attended by the NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero; his TUC counterpart, Festus Osifo and some other labour leaders.

Those attending on the side of government include the Chief of Staff to the President, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila; Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communication and Strategy, Mr Dele Alake and Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) of Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari.

A communiqué is expected to be issued at the end of the meeting.
