The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has expressed its disappointment with the Federal Government over the increase in petrol prices.
TUC: Tommy Etim, national vice president of the TUC, stated that the country is currently heading towards economic disaster.
“We’ve entered the one-chance zone.” Unfortunately, the administration is unsympathetic to the situation of ordinary people and the poorest of the poor. “You can see that the price of fuel, which is essential for the movement of goods and services, including informal businesses, has continued to fluctuate,” Etim explained.
He called the Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited’s (NNPCL) decision to raise fuel prices without providing justification unjust.
Etim went on to say that the blueprint for implementing the palliative care proposal for Nigerians has yet to be completed, stating that;
“All we are seeing is Tinubu going to the National Assembly, talking about distributing N8,000 to 12 million households.”
“What is the social register’s credibility?” Nigeria is experiencing multidimensional poverty, and with the current inflation rate, we are hoping that we would not become like Zimbabwe. Look at the naira; this need immediate care.
“When Tinubu arrived, we were optimistic, and we thought he started well, but he has begun to deviate.” He must remember the poorest of the poor who voted for him.
