Reno Omokri via his official Twitter handle, @renoomokri, stressed that he does not envy that person because he's going up there to face a serious challenge

Former Presidential aide under Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, Reno Omokri, has implored the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, to reconsider its position after the union declared an indefinite strike over the issue of fuel subsidy removal.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, during his inauguration speech, announced that the Federal Government would no longer pay for fuel subsidies to marketers and this has led to the hike in fuel pump prices that seems to be unavoidable to many Nigerian citizens.

However, the NLC, in response to the decision by the Nigerian Government, declared an indefinite strike action which will start on Wednesday morning till the relevant authorities reverse the fuel to its normal price.

Reacting to the development, the social activist, Reno Omokri stated in a statement released via his official Twitter handle that anybody that partakes in the strike action is an enemy of Nigeria because the removal of the subsidy is in the interest of the country.

In his tweet, “There is absolutely no reason for anyone to go on strike over the removal of fuel subsidy. Anyone who even talks of strike action over this issue is an enemy of Nigeria’s progress. Fuel subsidy is why Nigeria has an infrastructural, educational, and Human Development Index deficit. Subsidising consumption in a developing nation is an irresponsible act. If anything must be subsidised further, let it be education. Let it be learning skills.”
