Ikechukwu Nwafor, Ebonyi NLC chairman told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday that the government should reconsider its proposed action.

He warned that another increment in pump price would worsen the economic situation millions are enduring

The labor leader said the nation’s refineries should be fixed to put an end to importation.

“This is not the right time to increase pump price when the cost of living is difficult. Prices of food commodities are already beyond the capacity of civil servants.

“How will the civil servants, who are the engine of the economy, cope? We are telling the federal government to consider the consequences of the increase on the masses and the economy.”
