The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says it has no plans to embark on strike on Friday, June 2, over the removal of fuel subsidy.
The NLC spokesperson, Benson Upah, who made this known in a statement issued on Thursday, June 1, urged Nigerians to disregard reports that it would embark on strike from Friday.
The statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to stories circulating in the social media claiming that the NLC would begin protest action on June 2 against the increase in the pump price of petrol.
“In as much as we are outraged by this mindless price increase which is intended to bring untold hardship to Nigerians, we have no plan to start any action on June 2.
“What we do have for now are organ meetings slated for June 2 to deliberate on the price issue.”
Upah assured Nigerians that the NLC would keep Nigerians informed on its next line of action after its meetings.
