The Organised Labour in Bauchi State that joined in the Nationwide peaceful protest over the removal of fuel subsidy by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, have said, "We can't put food on our family table".

The Organised Labour are pressing for the immediate reversal of recent increase in fuel pump price as well as release of eight months salary of universities lectures among others.

Speaking to newsmen, the Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Bauchi State Council, Comrade Dauda Shuaibu, called on the federal government to quicken the implementation of the agreement signed with the Trade Union Congress (TUC).

They accused the president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, of implementing anti people policy which has brought untold hardship to the people in the country.

According to him, failure by government to meet the demands of labour would leave them with no option than to embark on further industrial action.

"The life of our citizens has been put in darkness, total unthinkable hardship and economic destabilization, especially the working class who have fixed incomes", lamented Shuaibu. Also speaking, the state chairmanof the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Comrade Sabiu Barau, said the union would continue with the struggle until their demands are made. He called on government to act fast before it became too late.

Responding to the demands by Labour on behalf of Governor Bala Muhammad, the Bauchi State Head of Service, Yahuza Adamu, said government is aware with the difficult situations people found themselves in as a result of the removal of fuel subsidy.

Adamu promised to forward their letter to Governor Bala Muhammad for onward submission to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Abuja.

He explained that the state government would soon start the distribution of palliatives to people as part of government's efforts to cushion the hardship being faced by the people of the state as result of the removal of fuel subsidy.
