The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has started off mass mobilisation of civil society organisations (CSOs) ahead of its planned January 27 and February 1 nationwide protests against the proposed removal of petrol subsidy by the Federal Government.

In a letter signed by NLC President Ayuba Wabba and General Secretary Emmanuel Ugboaja ahead of a meeting scheduled to hold tomorrow in Abuja and Friday in Lagos, the congress stated that the protest is necessary to register the displeasure and rejection by Nigerian workers and people of the proposed plans by the government to increase the price of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also commonly referred to as ‘petrol’.

It was also noted that the planned price hike would see a litre of petrol sell between N340 and N360.

It read;


“Comrade, you may recall that at the regular meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigeria Labour Congress, which took place on 17th December 2021 at the Oyerinde Olaitan Auditorium, Pascal Bafyau Labour House, the NEC decided, among other things, to mobilise Nigerian workers and people for a nationwide protest on the 27th of January 2022, particularly in all the state capitals of the federation.
