Federal Government has assured the tripartite labour community of the organised labour, private sector and indeed Nigerians that there is currently no increase in the price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS.

A statement in Abuja by the Deputy Director Press at the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Mr Charles Akpan says there will be no increase in the price of PMS for now, as discussions are still ongoing between government and the organised labour as well as stakeholders on the matter.

The statement quotes the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige as saying that he had made contact with the relevant authorities, Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources and the NNPC and wish to assure the public, especially the organised labour and workers that there is no such increase for now.

It also explains that discussions are ongoing concurrently and that the next meeting between the Federal government and the organised labour will hold immediately after the Easter break.

The statement notes that the present attempt to hoist a fake information on the government and its efforts, runs against the ongoing discussions.
