Group wants FG, NLC to dialogue on petrol price
Alhaji Abubakar Yabo, a group leader, has called for dialogue between the Federal Government and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to resolve the issues surrounding the increase in the pump price of petrol.
Yabo, who is the Secretary Aliyu Magatakarda Advocacy Group ( AMAG) in Sokoto State, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that embarking on a nationwide strike could not resolve the issue.
He said that rather than protest, the organised labour should discuss with the government in order not to put Nigerians through any further suffering in the name of strike.
The group leader explained that marching innocent workers out for a protest might pose a great threat to their lives, considering the present security challenges facing the nation.
Yabo lauded Nigerians for their patience and understanding by demonstrating maturity before and after the removal of the subsidy.
He called on the Federal Government to come out with a strong economic policy that would develop the country.
Yabo expressed optimism in the President Muhammodu Buhari administration in fashioning out laudable policies and programmes that would improve the living condition of all Nigerians.
He called on Nigerians to continue to exercise patience, as the 2016 budget would address their yearnings and aspirations.
