NLC Plans Massive Resistance Over Fuel Subsidy Scam.

Nigeria Labour Congress promise to align with the House of Representatives to ensure the prosecution of those indicted in the N1.07 trillion scam uncovered in the management of the Petroleum Subsidy Fund.

The workers umbrella body urged the Federal Government to ensure the culprits are not only brought to book, but made to refund the funds they illegal collected as recommended by the House ad-hoc committee, led by Farouk Lawan.

President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Abdulwaheed Omar, gave the warning yesterday at the National Executive Council meeting.

“Whatever that is going to bring sanity to the Nigerian nation, we will continue to encourage the National Assembly. Part of what we are reflecting on ahead of the May Day is that the subsidy probe is coming as a result of the mass protest that labour and it’s allies organised.

“We are assuring the House that we are solidly behind them, Nigerians are behind them. Everybody who is found guilty must be brought to book so that we can sanitise the system and make sure that Nigeria moves ahead.”

He said the Congress will move against any further increment in the pump price of fuel stating that there was no justification for government to increase fuel price when it has not addressed the corruption in the sector.
