Fuel Scarcity: No Reason is Good Enough - NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress NLC has condemned the prevailing scarcity of petroleum products across the country leading to avoidable pain and suffering.

A statement signed by the President, Ayuba Wabba said diverse reasons have been given for the scarcity but no reason is good enough for the present wave of suffering inflicted on the citizenry via scarcity of petroleum products.

He went further to say, "We at the Nigeria Labour Congress consider this scarcity as an act of cruelty and sabotage from which a few privileged are benefitting.

"The timing of this artificial scarcity is not lost on us as it is intended to maximise pain and profit since it is a well-known fact that the Christmas season witnesses the biggest movement of people, goods and services.

"We also consider this scarcity as an insult to the collective pride of all good Nigerians as we ought not to be operating at this philistine and pristine level.

"More than ever before, we should get right the business of petroleum products, from the upstream to downstream.

"We have made the point without number that we have no business importing petroleum products after 60 years of discovering in commercial quantity, crude oil in our shores.

"Accordingly, we strongly urge government to fix this problem within the next few days, whatever it takes." the statement concluded.
