Labor leaders walk out of meeting with FG over fuel price hike


Labor unions representatives staged a walk-out from a meeting with federal government on Sunday.

The labor unions walked out of the meeting barely five minutes after it started.

The president of the Trade Union Congress, Quadri Olaleye, told newsmen that the hike in the price of fuel and electricity tariffs were top on the meeting agenda and not issues of palliatives.

He accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government of dishonesty and painting the organized labor in a bad light before the general public.

The Minister of Labor and Employment, Chris Ngige, represented the Federal Government alongside the Minister of State for Labor, Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva, Minister of state for power, Goddy Agba and the Secretary to the Government, Boss Mustapha.
