Nigerians Surprised As Labour Keeps Mum On Fuel Price Increase by Racoon(m): 8:42pm On Nov 15
Despite various calls by Nigerians both online and offline that the Organised Labour should react to the recent increment in Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) popularly known as petrol, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and its Trade Union Congress (TUC) counterpart have kept silent.

The increment came barely after 72 hours oil workers under the aegis of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) declared indefinite strike over issues related to Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) and other sundry issues.

Daily Trust had on Saturday reported that Nigerians are still groaning following the federal government’s decision to raise the pump price from N160 to N170, with many calling out labour leaders to take actions.


The Justification

But the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) justified the increment, saying “the slight increase in the price based on the prevailing realities of market forces of demand and supply”.

However, days after the increment, the NLC and the TUC are yet to officially react either via a statement or other means.The labour leaders neither responded to several calls nor text and Whatsapp messages sent by our correspondent.

Similarly, other journalists covering labour beat have also expressed their frustrations towards labour leaders’ non-response to calls and messages.

A journalist working with one the national dailies said, “I’ve called and sent different messages, all to no avail. I called some members of staff at Labour House, none of them responded appropriately.

Buhari is the most powerful president since 1999, nobody dare to challenge him.

The only president who removed fuel subsidy completely unchallenged.

Pa Michael Imoudu will be rolling in his grave after seeing what the NLC has become today.
How did she fall from grace?
A once vibrant militant trade unionism that was further revamped by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole despite 'you know what' is now as impotent as an expired, adulterated painkiller.

The Trade Union we see today is even less than an unfunny joke in the mouth of a drunk jester.
No one takes her threats seriously...not the people, not the government, not even the union itself.

Incase you've forgotten, it's almost a month of the expiration of their two weeks' ultimatum on the Electricity tariff.

But like my grandmother will always say.
"Do not ask whose side the househelp is on when she will not intercede when the master is fighting with her madam".
She's only looking out for her self.
