The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has expressed its discouragement with the Federal Government over the increase in the price of fuel.

TUC’s national vice president, Tommy Etim, said the country is currently headed towards economic chaos.


“We are entering one-chance. It is unfortunate that the government is insensitive to the plight of the commoners and the poorest of the poor. You can see that fuel which is essential to the movement of goods and services, including the informal businesses, have continued to fluctuate in price,” Etim said.

He described the decision of the Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) to increase the fuel price without any cogent reasons as unfair.

Etim further explained that the template for the implementation of the proposal for palliative for Nigerians has not been concluded noting that “all that we are seeing is Tinubu going to the National Assembly, talking about distribution of N8,000 to 12 million households”.

“What is the credibility of the social register? Nigeria is undergoing dimensional poverty and with the inflation rate, we are praying that we will not be like Zimbabwe. Look at the naira, this calls for urgent attention.

“When Tinubu came in we were optimistic and we felt that he started well but he has started to deviate. He needs to remember the poorest of the poor who voted him into office.

“Look at the prices of food. Garri is now a luxury. People can’t afford garri again. Government has refused to think outside the box. At this point, we are seriously doubting if the proposal of the committee will be implemented,” he added.
