Judiciary Workers Declare Nationwide Crisis Over Fuel Subsidy

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has declared industrial action over the removal of fuel subsidy.

The pump price of fuel tripled after President Bola Tinubu declared that fuel subsidy was gone.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited (NNPCL) had directed its retail station to jerk up the price of fuel per litre from N197 to between N488 and N570.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) had subsequently declared nationwide strike, with effect from Wednesday.

“This followed a decision of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) at her meeting on 2nd June, 2023 over the increase in the pump price of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) by the Federal Government through the NNPCL,” he said.
