Strike continues on Monday: NLC meeting with government ends in a deadlock

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!

  1. What i understand by democracy is; the government of the people, by the people and for the people. But the government have turn his back on us to surfar what we don‘t deserved. For GOD sake Mr President, is it by force to help us? We are the people who volted you in to that office and we are the same people who are saying we don‘t need your help cont you understand that?. Pls Jonathan, reverse your statement and return the fuel stupid or subsidy to 65 naira that is what we need from you okey.

  3. none among the comity of nation has ever made it through without some quantum of sacrifice. this sacrifice comes in diffent form. Tunisia set the pace for the now called ARAB SPRING or UPRISING. south Africa also threaded the path that brought the end of the APATHEID. Ghana did also took the bold step through J.J. Rawlings. If this is what we must endure in the interim to secure a more promising future, its just pertinent we do it if not for anything but to consolidate the painstaking cum self sacrifice our gallant heros made. Today we commemorate the arm force remmembrance day. The BIG question is what shall we be remmembered for?
