A Federal Government team is meeting with Organised Labour at the Presidential Villa Abuja.
The meeting, which is held in the Chief of Staff’s Conference Room of the Villa, was expected to discuss issues surrounding the escalating fuel crisis across the country.
The proclamation of an end of the fuel subsidy regime by President Bola Tinubu on Monday during his inaugural speech has sparked hoarding of the product and panic buying.
The Nation reports that Organised Labour is led by the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, and his Trade Union Congress (TUC) counterpart, Comrade Festus Osifo.
Federal Government’s representatives in the meeting include the former President of NLC Comrade Adams Oshiomhole; the Permanent Secretary, State House Tijjani Umar; the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Foldable Yemi-Esan and the Group Chief Executive Officer, of the NNPCL, Mele Kyari among others.
