The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has refuted the claim of President Bola Tinubu that one trillion naira has been saved since his government ceased payment of fuel subsidy.
In a nationwide broadcast on Monday, the president revealed that a total of one trillion naira had been saved since subsidy payment was stopped.
Speaking during the ongoing nationwide protest of organised labour, Comrade Joe Ajaero, NLC President, said the committee that the Federal Government set up to negotiate with Labour revealed that not a single kobo had been saved.
Meanwhile, the Secretary-General of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Emmanuel Ugboaja, on Wednesday afternoon blasted the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Justice, Jeddy Agba, over what he called a “black market” court order obtained to stop the labour centre from embarking on a peaceful protest.
Ugboaja who addressed protesters at the National Assembly noted that the decision to take a breather at the Ministry of Justice was to ensure that “Agba got a rejuvenation” which will enable her to understand the “law.”
