NLC President Explains Why Dwindling Crude Oil Price Affects Nigeria



Omar - December 2014 - 01
Malam Abdulwaheed Omar, the President, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has said that the dwindling crude oil price is affecting the country because Nigeria has never imbibed the culture of saving.

Omar spoke at a briefing on the ongoing strike by NUPENG and PENGASSAN on Tuesday that it was the refusal of government to fulfill agreements reached with the unions that led to strike.

He said in spite of the crude oil situation faced by the country, the unions would not stop fighting for the rights of the people.

The NLC president said that it was high time the government stop breaching agreement reached at the negotiation table.

“I think it is high time we call on government to make sure that every agreement mutually reached and sign must be implemented as when due.

“We must note that failure on either side should not be condoled because I have not even seen anywhere, where agreements reached with workers are breach by those in authority.

“This does not speak well of our democracy because democracy means do what is right,” Omar said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
