in the view to satisfy and reduce the stress of COVID-19 Lockdown order by President Muhammadu Buhari, the organized labour has re-echoed the request of the People’s Democratic Party.
Naija News had earlier reported last month that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) appealed to the Federal Government to slash the pump price of fuel .
However, speaking to media as part of activities to mark the International Workers’ Day on Friday, President of the United Labour Congress of Nigeria (ULC), Joe Ajaero appealed to Buhari to further reduce the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, otherwise known as petrol, to N60.
Labour said Nigerians should not pay more than N60 for a litre of petrol.
Ajaero also asked that an investment of 20 percent of the entire donations received by the government from individuals, groups and organizations to help combat the Coronavirus pandemic, should be used to fund the activities of various research institutes across the nation.
