Trade Unions talk tough about electricity tariff/petrol price hikes during meeting with FG today

  • TUC issues seven-day ultimatum, plans nationwide protests beginning Sept 23
  • We will convince congress, others on price increases at today’s meeting, says FG

The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Monday said the Federal Government had surrendered the growth and development of the country to the International Monetary  Fund and the World Bank.

The National President of the union, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, who said this in a telephone interview with The PUNCH in Lagos, said the Federal Government should prepare for more crises as people’s anger against the government would worsen as a result of hunger in the land.

He also said those running “Nigeria today do not love Nigerians,” but relied on the advice of some “outside forces.”

Also on Monday, the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria gave the Federal Government a seven-day ultimatum to reverse the recent increase in electricity tariff and the price of petrol.

The TUC gave the ultimatum in a letter addressed to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), and dated September 14, 2020.
