The NLC/TUC meeting with the government on the removal of fuel subsidy finally came to an end at about 11:30pm on Saturday, 14th January, 2012. The meeting lasted about 4 hours. The FG Team was led by Pius Anyim and Senate President David Mark presided while NLC /TUC team was led by Omar and Peter Esele.
The meeting ended in a deadlock as no compromise was reached on the issue. NLC says strike continues on Monday as the government has refused to revert to N65 per litre of PMS.
However, PENGASSAN says they stand by TUC. Systematic shutdown will go ahead as scheduled. PENGASSAN has ordered all its branches to proceed with shutting down of the upstream oil sector to take effect today.
Go out tomorrow and stock your home with food. We are going on a long walk to freedom!
