BREAKING NEWS: Labour congress orders Nationwide strike, starting now!

ALTHOUGH it is still early days,
Nigerians yesterday got a taste
of the full deregulation of the
downstream sector of the oil
industry as pump price
differentiation was the order of
the day in filling stations across
the country.
Also, condemnation and
commendation continued to
trail the government's decision
to remove the subsidy on petrol.
Meanwhile, a coalition of
Labour, civil society groups and
others has said it would start a
nationwide strike today over the
removal of fuel subsidy that has
pushed the price of petrol to at
least N138 a litre from N65.
Apparently seeking a way to
profit from the sudden
inauguration of the regime,
petroleum marketers in Lagos at
first shut their outlets to
motorists, which engendered
queues at these stations.
