NLC identifies key areas to be addressed before pump price adjustment.

The Nigeria Labour Congress has said it has enumerated several important issues that should be addressed before the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation will adjust the pump price of petrol.

The Deputy President, NLC, Joe Ajaero, who disclosed that the Labour unions made this clear to the Federal Government at thier last meeting on the petrol price matter and said that one of such items was that the oil firm must fix the country’s refineries in order to cut down on the importation of refined petroleum products by NNPC into Nigeria.

Ajaero disclosed this while reacting to statements by NNPC that the corporation would only adjust petrol price after the Federal Government had concluded negotiations with labour.

NNPC’s had on Monday said that the price of petrol was not going to be adjusted despite the fluctuations in global crude oil prices until the Federal Government, labour and other stakeholders agree on pricing issues.
