The NLC team was headed by its national president, Joe Ajaero, while the TUC team was headed by its president, Festus Osifo.

This is coming a few hours after the NLC maintained that the administration of President Bola Tinubu has declared hardship war on Nigerians through the economic policies he introduced including the removal of fuel subsidy, Daily Trust reported.

The congress noted that Nigerians lost their peace of mind following the “subsidy is gone” comment made by Tinubu on Monday, May 29, 2023.

Whilst Nigerians await the outcome of the organised labour and federal government’s dialogue on policy measures to cushion the economic challenges brought about by the subsidy removal on petroleum products, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has threatened to declare national protest.
