RECESSION: Nigerians losing faith in FG’s ability to end sufferings – NLC

NIGERIA Labour Congress, NLC, has said Nigerians were beginning to feel the Federal Government lacked the capacity to end the hardship and sufferings caused by economic recession currently weighing down workers and the masses.
The NLC in a statement signed by the Joe Ajaero faction, therefore, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to provide the needed socio-economic and political leadership to restore hope and douse the mounting despair and sufferings in the country.
The statement read: “Nigerians want to see new jobs or a guarantee that the spate of job losses have ceased. They want to see rice, garri, beverages and utilities within their reach and functioning.
‘’We want to see the cost of transport come down and the roads being repaired. We want to see that the rot has stopped and the run on the economy turning around for the better.
