TRADE UNION CONGRESS KICKS AGAINST NNPC AS SOLE PROVIDER OF FUEL

The National Executive Council of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria has said that the current situation in which the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation is the sole provider of fuel to the nation and absorbing subsidies is not healthy for the country.

The TUC took this stand at the end of its NEC meeting in Lagos and advised the government to reimburse the NNPC to enable it to perform its primary obligation to the country.

It called on the Federal Government to begin the immediate payment of all outstanding subsidy claims owed petroleum marketers under the Petroleum Products Pricing and Regulatory Agency-administered Petroleum Support Fund in order to avoid consequential job losses, which the nation could least afford.
