The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, says the recent hike in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, commonly known as petrol, is one of many ways successive governments have trampled on the rights of Nigerians without remorse.

In an address at the opening ceremony of a four-day programme for leaders of the state councils of the union, President of NLC, Joe Ajaero, said the Nigerian state had declared war on the masses of Nigeria with anti-poor policies.

Represented by the Deputy President of Congress, Adewale Adeyanju, he noted that trade union leaders must not abandon the Nigerian people and workers to their fate.

According to NLC, impoverishing workers and pushing millions more into hellish living does not in any way approximate sound economic management.
