Fuel Scarcity in Abuja
Fuel Scarcity in Abuja

Fuel-Scarcity-in-Abuja1A faction of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, led by Comrade Joe Ajaero has described the chronic fuel scarcity experienced across the country as war against the citizens and a deliberate attempt to subject Nigerians to economic suicide, threatening that, should the scarcity linger, it will compel workers nation to proceed on an indefinite strike.
NLC, according to a statement issued yesterday by its Deputy President, Comrade Issa Arem‎u, said “Nigeria is the only country on earth which unacceptably and criminally denies its citizens basic sources of energy; fuel and electricity‎.”
It however said that, it was time all Nigerians stopped agonizing and rise in unison against this (Nigeria’s) agony of capitalism‎‎.
‎According to the labour union, “After several weeks of deliberate deprivation of petroleum products by both the government and marketers alike with all the associated hardships, it is time all Nigerians stop agonizing and rise in unison against this (Nigeria’s) agony of capitalism.
“With petroleum products’ prices as high as N350 per litre, (far above N87 per litre!) claims and counter-claims between Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and marketers over so-called N159billion subsidy payments and all state actors looking indifferent, Nigeria is the only country on earth which unacceptably and criminally denies its citizens basic sources of energy; fuel and electricity.
‎The statement entitled; “Time To Rise Up Against On-going Agony Capitalism And Economicide”, threatened that, “if the current scarcity and price robbery of Nigerians continue, Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has no choice but compel workers to stay at home. Workers will certainly not fuel themselves to work with their blood. There is a limit to slavery and state/marketers’ extortions!”
