Labour Stands Firm: Walks Out of Crucial Meeting with FG Over Subsidy Palliatives

Representatives of organised labour staged a dramatic walkout during a meeting with the Federal Government’s team on palliatives, deepening the tension surrounding the subsidy removal in the country. Led by the president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Joe Ajaero, the labour team exited the meeting without addressing the waiting journalists, leaving the government representatives stunned.

The meeting was supposed to be a pivotal moment in the ongoing discussions between the government and labour regarding palliatives to mitigate the effects of the subsidy removal. Previously, the two sides had met on Wednesday, seemingly making progress and raising hopes of a fruitful resolution.

However, much to everyone’s surprise, the eagerly anticipated meeting on Friday failed to take place, with the labour officials alleging that the government’s representatives were absentee. This turn of events has fueled further tensions between labour and the government, casting more doubt on the prospects of finding a compromise to address the skyrocketing petrol prices.

Notably, even before the walkout, members of the labour teams were met with delays at the entrance of the State House gate before being eventually granted access to the meeting venue, adding insult to injury.

Ever since the subsidy removal, the price of petrol has soared, burdening ordinary Nigerians. Labour, being a zealous advocate for the welfare of its constituents, has been pushing for palliatives to alleviate the adverse effects of this decision. Frustrated and running out of patience, they have threatened to embark on a nationwide strike if their demands continue to be ignored.
