Your harsh policies responsible for hardship, Bauchi NLC tells Tinubu

The Bauchi State Chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said the introduction of harsh economic policies and removal of subsidies on fuel, electricity, fertilizer and farm inputs as well as floating of the naira by President Bola Tinubu’s government shattered the hope of Nigerians.

State Chairman of NLC, Comrade Dauda Shuaibu, stated this during the 2024 Workers’ Day celebration held at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa stadium, Bauchi, on Wednesday.

“There is no logic in removing subsidy and giving a paltry palliative that cannot cover one quarter of the citizens.”

“Government at the centre has failed to realize that no developing will progress without subsidies. Even the so called developed nations do grant economy subsidies in all the areas we mentioned above. We view the action of
government on removal of subsidies as an effort to impoverish the citizens and turn all of us to slaves and beggars. This is also in a bid to satisfy the western world and their retrogressive agenda against all African countries with huge potentials which they view as a threat to their economies.”

“It is unfortunate that government has also continued to foot drag on the issue of new minimum Wage. We are therefore calling on workers to brace up and prepare for a big show down if the issue is further delayed unnecessarily. We cannot continue to watch while people are dying of hunger and malnutrition due to an artificial inflation imposed on citizens and negligence on the part of authorities.

“The President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federation, had on assumption of office in May 2023, promised to sustain and improve on the issue of citizens’ welfare and security which is the cardinal objectives of any
administration, but for the past one year, there is no noticeable change in the life of workers and citizens.”
