The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) will go ahead with the planned nationwide protest against the removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government.
This comes after the Federal Government announced that it was suspending the planned subsidy removal for now.
NLC had scheduled a nationwide mass protest set to hold on Thursday having written to the 36 state governors to demand the withdrawal of the plan to remove fuel subsidy in June.
According to the NLC, the continuous rise in the price of petrol is as a result of the inability of government to efficiently govern the country.
Recall that the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed; and the Minister of State Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva; at the National Assembly on Monday, in Abuja, said the Federal Government had suspended the plan to remove fuel subsidy.
The new development will not stop the planned protest, NLCs Assistant General Secretary, Asuzu Echezona, told reporters on Monday.
“We are continuing with preparation for the protests,” he said on Monday night.
