The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have kicked against the Federal Government’s idea of sending subsidy removal palliative packages to the state governments.

According to reports, the unions claimed that if the FG leaves the programme for state governors to handle, the palliatives will not get to the intended beneficiaries.

The FG’s resolve to release the ₦180bn palliative package to State Governments to cushion the effect of subsidy removal is not sitting well with organised labour as the union alleged that the state governors would frustrate the programme.

The unions strongly believe the poor would not benefit from the ₦5bn largess given to each state if the FG gives the funds to state governors.

On Thursday, August 17, 2023, the FG announced that each state of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) would receive ₦5 billion palliatives and 180 trucks of rice to help them cushion the impact of the fuel subsidy removal.
