Nigeria Will be great if fuel would be sold at ₦408 per litre — Nigeria Governors Forum Says

A committee set up by Nigeria’s Governors Forum has recommended a petrol price of between N408.5 per litre and N380 per litre.

The committee on Wednesday also called for immediate removal of fuel subsidy.

During the meeting, the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, accused his fellow governors of abandoning his administration in its face-off with the Nigeria Labour Congress.

Governor El-Rufai also accused an unnamed governor of providing mobilisation funds for the NLC to destabilise Kaduna State.

Workers in the state workers had on Monday begun a five-day strike over El-Rufai administration’s retrenchment of 45,000 workers and the alleged anti-labour policies.

There was confusion in the state on Tuesday as thugs attacked workers at a rally organised by the NLC prompting the congress to issue a statement, where it threatened to declare a nationwide strike.

El-Rufai had earlier on Tuesday declared the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, wanted for allegedly sabotaging the economy of the state.

Baring his mind at the NGF meeting on Wednesday, El-Rufai said he did not get the required support from his colleagues.
