The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has warned the Federal Government against increase in electricity tariff as being speculated.
There have been reports that the Federal Government plans to increase electricity tariff soon.
But in a statement on Wednesday, NLC President, Mr Ayuba Wabba, vowed that NLC would deploy industrial mechanisms granted in labour laws to defend workers’ rights.
According to Wabba, the reports about increase of electricity tariff should remain “mere speculations.”
The statement read, “It is in light of this that we dismiss the ongoing speculation on increase in electricity tariff as mere speculations.
“We, however, find it prudent to put you on notice should the government make true the swirling speculation by approving an increase in electricity tariff.
“Organised Labour will be left with no option than to deploy the industrial mechanisms granted in our laws for the defense of workers’ rights.”
