The Organised Labour has called on Nigerians to reject the new hike price of petrol from N170 per litre to N185 per litre introduced by the Federal Government.
The FG officially increased the price of petrol by 8.8 per cent as the ex-depot price also shot up from N148 per litre to N167.
However, it is noted that many filling stations have been selling far above this new price, a situation which may have made the new price almost impracticable.
In a notice to fuel marketers, yesterday, the government directed that the new price should take immediate effect.
Reacting to the announcement of the petrol hike, Organised Labour, expressed shock over the increase, describing it as the “last kick of a dying regime.”
