Tinubu meets NLC, TUC leaders amidst fuel subsidy protest



Leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Wednesday met with President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting took place a few hours after the organized labour led out Nigerians to protest the removal of the fuel subsidy and other policy initiatives of the current administration.

The labour leaders at the meeting were the NLC President, Joe Ajaero and his TUC counterpart, Festus Osifo as well as the general secretaries and other top members of the two workers’ organizations.

However, issues discussed at the meeting have not been made public.

But they may not be unconnected with the labour demands from the government.

The demands include the reversal of the fuel subsidy removal, a review of the current minimum wage, the release of the eight months’ salaries of university lecturers and workers withheld by the federal government and a reversal of the hike in school fees.
