Labour Minister Unveils Plan To Address Fuel Price



Minister of Labour and Employment Senator Chris Ngige has said President Muhammadu Buhari and Governors will discuss the issue of fuel pricing on Thursday.

The Minister disclosed this after a meeting of the Federal Government and the Organised Labour at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Briefing journalists on their resolutions at the end of the meeting, the Minister said Organised Labour had investigated the report of the Technical Committee on Premium Motor Spirit Pricing (otherwise known as petrol) Framework as agreed at the last meeting and made their submissions alongside the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

Ngige insisted that the government had no money for fuel subsidy following the deregulation of the sector.
