TUC renews calls for end to naira, fuel crisis


The Trade Union Congress is dissatisfied with the country’s chronic fuel scarcity, which has brought it to its knees.

It has now reiterated its call for an end to the fuel crisis, which has resulted in a lack of consistency in commodity prices across states.

In the last few months, Nigerians have been subjected to scarcity of petrol.

Across the country, the prices of Petroleum motor spirit now differ with some states selling as high as N800 per litre.

It has been a war of words between oil marketers and the authorities over the cause of the scarcity.

Only on Monday, the Independent Marketers Association of Nigeria, directed its members to down tools over unresolved issues and that caused some stir.

But a quick intervention saw the action reversed.

For the umpteenth time, the Trade Union Congress, is raising concerns about the hardship brought about by the unending fuel shortage.

It insists local refinery is the answer to the perennial fuel scarcity.

There has been relative ease of queues at gas stations as a result of government’s efforts but TUC says Nigerians have no reason to go through so much hardship as an oil producing nation.

The Congress also expressed concerns about the troubles associated with the latest cashless policy of the government.

The Congress also set agenda for the Council of States meeting holding on Friday.

TUC says it is not in support of a shift in the forthcoming elections, but interested in alleviating the sufferings of the people and will do with its mean to work out democratic, constitutional and legal means to save the masses.
