President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting with the representatives of the organized labour comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC of Nigeria shortly after they rounded off a nationwide protest over the recent hike in Petrol price.


Recall that the leadership of the organised labour led by the NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero and his TUC counterpart, Festus Osifo had earlier led the Nigerian workers to a peaceful rally that started from the Unity Fountain and terminated at the National Assembly.

The organised labour protest over the removal of petrol subsidy has led to an increase in the pump price from an initial N195 before the swearing of the President on May 29 to N550 per litre and later to N617 which has led to an increase in goods and services and the attendant hardship.

However, the President of the NLC, Comrade Joe Ajaero and that of TUC, Osifo, walked into the President’s office at about 5:15 pm.

It should be noted that while in the senate, organised labour had queried why the Chief of Staff to the President, who is always busy should lead negotiations with labour.
