No Effort On Cash Transfers, Fixing Refineries, Others By Tinubu Govt – NLC

The Bola Tinubu-led Federal Government has come under fire from the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) for failing to abide by its demands after the elimination of the gasoline subsidy.

According to, the labour union demanded, among other things, the review of the minimum wage, the provision of a workable roadmap to the Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) alternative, the fixing of the nation’s refineries, and the payment of lecturers’ salary arrears as a result of the economic hardship caused by the removal of fuel subsidies.

NLC President Joe Ajaero voiced his displeasure on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Monday on the lack of effort made by the government to accomodate the union’s requests.

Ajaero said the government has refused to address issues like cash transfer and the provision of buses for workers to cushion the effect of the increase in petrol price.


He stated: “They have not made any efforts on any issue.

“Even the issue as simple as cash transfer or bringing buses on the road, nothing has happened to them. So, it’s a lack of willingness, and we can’t muddle up all these issues.

“Then you call a minimum wage a wage award. If anybody is looking at the issue of wage award as minimum wage, then there’s confusion within that class of people.”

The NLC leader claimed it was obvious that a million vehicles could be converted within three months, citing a 2021 deal on CNG vehicles struck with the former Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva.

Ajaero criticised the Federal Government’s 2024 plan to use CNG buses in order to create a more cost-effective mass transportation system.

He said: “If anybody is telling you that until next year, nothing could be done, I’m telling you that the person is not telling us the truth.


“What is so peculiar about next year when these processes will start? Is it that there are no CNG vehicles that can go onto the road, or we can’t have some stations, even with IPMAN saying that their filling stations are available?”
