BREAKING: NLC Rejects New Petrol Pump Price 

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has rejected the new pump price of petrol fixed by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited (NNPCL).

The oil firm has directed its outlets nationwide to sell fuel between N480 and N570 per litre for the New Petrol Price, according to reports.

Garba Deen Muhammad, Chief Corporate Communications Officer of NNPC Ltd, had announced that the company made the price adjustment in line with “market realities.”

But NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero, who briefed journalists at Labour House, Abuja, on Wednesday, said the congress would not accept that.

He added that the fixing of price is not what government could do unilaterally.
