The subsidy removal policy of the Federal Government may have snowballed into another crisis as the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress is perfecting plans to probe payments for imported fuel made under the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Joe Ajaero gave this indication on Friday, at an emergency National Executive Council meeting of the Labour union in Abuja.

Lamenting the situation, Ajaero said most of the State Governors were still defaulting in the payment of the N30,000 minimum wage and the government was feigning ignorance that over half of the population in Nigeria were experiencing multidimensional poverty.

“We are going to probe subsidy payments in the last eight years, at least that under the immediate past administration of Muhammadu Buhari because nobody seems to be looking in that direction,” he stated in the presence of media organisations on ground at the briefing session.
