Subsequently, the faction has threatened to direct its members to embark on an indefinite strike action should the scarcity continue unabated.

According to a statement issued today and signed by the NLC Deputy President, Comrade Issa Arem‎u, the labour union averred that, “Nigeria is the only country on earth which unacceptably and criminally denies its citizens basic sources of energy; fuel and electricity‎”.

It, however said it was time all Nigerians stopped agonizing and rose in unison against this “agony capitalism‎‎”.
