Concerning fuel scarcity, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has related a message to Nigerians.
It is asking that the citizens and residents of the nation should hold the government responsible for its failure to acknowledge the unpleasant fuel scarcity issue in the country.
It said that they should know where to face instead of channeling criticisms to the labour union.
On Wednesday, the president of the congress, Ayuba Wabba, said they have managed to stop the government from hiking fuel prices and eliminating subsidy.
They also said that Nigerians should support the group rather than playing blame game.
Wabba talked about this in an episode of the weekly PREMIUM TIMES’ TwitterSpaces.

The people that were present at the event include Mr Wabba, the president of the Independent Petroleum Marketing Association of Nigeria, Chinedu Okoronkwo, a nollywood actress and activist, Kate Henshaw, and many other Nigerians who appeared in the audience.
Nigerians have suffered months of tiring fuel shortages which started earlier in 2021, after the federal government announced to stop the payment of subsidy on petrol.
As the scarcity continued, some people have accused the organised union, especially the NLC along side the Trade Union Congress, of not doing enough to put some pressure on the government to make sure the problem is addressed, as they did in the past.
The Nigeria Labour Congress said that rather than coming together to support them, people are the putting blame on them.
Rather than holding them responsible, they urge every Nigerian to play an active role in holding the government accountable,” Mr Ayuba said.
