The Nigeria Labor Congress (NLC) has given the central government fourteen days, to invert the expansion in petroleum cost and electricity tariff, or face industrial action from September 28. 

NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, expressed this while talking after the Central Working Committee (NAC) and National Administrative Council (NAC) met at the Labor House. 
Wabba affirmed that their gathering with the Federal Government on Tuesday finished in a halt.

“It was resolved that the Federal Government has within two weeks to reverse the increases or face industrial action.

“It was also resolved that the Central Working Committee (CWC) will meet on September 22, 2020, to give effect to the CWC resolutions if the prices are not reversed before that date.

“We also mobilising our civil society allies for the action because it is presently deepening poverty among the working class,” Wabba said.

It had reported that the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) recently directed its members in the South-West States to sell Petrol at N162 per litre.

The electricity tariff across the country has also been increased, though many groups individuals and organizations have kicked against the increments.
