Reno Omokri, a former media aide to President Goodluck Jonathan has advised the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to reconsider its position after the union declared an indefinite strike over the issue of removal of fuel subsidy. Recall that during his inauguration speech, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu announced that the Federal Government would no longer pay for fuel subsidies to marketers.
In response to the decision by the Federal Government, the NLC declared an indefinite strike action which will start on Wednesday morning till the relevant authorities reverse the fuel to its normal price. Reacting to the development, Reno Omokri stated that anybody that partakes in the strike action is an enemy of Nigeria because the removal of the subsidy is in the interest of the country.
“There is absolutely no reason for anyone to go on strike over the removal of fuel subsidy. Anyone who even talks of strike action over this issue is an enemy of Nigeria’s progress. Fuel subsidy is why Nigeria has an infrastructural, educational, and Human Development Index deficit. Subsidising consumption in a developing nation is an irresponsible act. If anything must be subsidised further, let it be education. Let it be learning skills.” He wrote
