The Leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, have on Sunday, walked out of a meeting with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, and other Federal Government Representatives, at a meeting, over the recent increment of the price of petrol in the country, .
The NLC Delegation was represented by the President of the Nigeria Union of Electricity Employees, NUEE, Joe Ajaero, and President of the Trade Union Congress, TUC, Quadri Olaleye.
The reason for the walking out of the meeting remained unclear, at the time of filing in this report.
Earlier during his opening remarks at the meeting, the TUC Leader said that many Leaders of Labour Unions missed the meeting, because they were afraid of being attacked by the masses again.
His words: “I cannot pretend to deceive myself. It has got to a stage, I do not want to call it crisis, where we cannot pretend again. I want to say we are not happy, and it is making us to lose courage with this government.”
