Fuel hike: Private sector, Aviation workers, back out of planned strike

Their position was made known by their chairman, Alhaji Tokunbo Korodo in an interview with newsmen in Lagos.

According to Korodo: “We have informed our members to work and ensure that nobody intimidates them while doing their work.

“After a two-day deliberation on the hike in the price, PENGASSAN and NUPENG have no choice than to support the Federal Government`s stand on the price increase.

“We believe that this is the only way to move the sector forward. It will also encourage more investments in the sector. Foreign investors will bring in the product without expecting foreign exchange from CBN or the Federal Government.

“This will lead to creation of more jobs for Nigerians and make the petrol to be available.”
