The Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) has rejected the increase in petrol pump price from N123 to N143.80 per litre .
This is contained in a statement signed and issued by the union’s General Secretary, Peters Adeyemi,
Adeyemi says the increase is not justified, especially at a time when the Nation is battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
He stresses that the increase is an extortion of the downtrodden, in favour of market forces.
The General Secretary notes that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought economic crisis, leading to hardship faced by so many Nigerians.
He therefore demands an immediate reversal of the increase by the Government.
