Angry Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) issues a two-week ultimatum to the Federal Government to reverse the hikes in electricity tariff and the fuel pump price or face civil unrest nationwide.

The NLC handed down the warning at its  Central Working Committee meeting which ended some minutes ago.

Following its meeting with the FG on Tuesday, the labour union held a Central Working Committee on Wednesday where it deliberated and came to the decision to issue a 14 day ultimatum which is to expire on the 28th of September.
The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Ayuba Wabba while addressing journalists said: “We have convened because of the twin issues of hikes in fuel price and electricity tariff and the CWC has noted that the two increases, despite the fact that they are ill termed because of COVID-19 and the economic situation of the country, the CWC has also identified that it has reduced the purchasing power of Nigerians.

In a communiqué read by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, the union said the ultimatum takes immediate effect, warning that it would mobilize its members nationwide for a protest after September 28.
