From Ibrahim Sidi Muh’d, Gusau
The Nigeria Union of Public Service Reportorial Secretariat, Data Processors and Allied Workers (NUPSTRAW) has urged federal government to quickly respond positively to the massive yearnings and aspirations to reverse the recent increment of petrol pump price.
The call was made in a communique signed by the national President and General Secretary of NUPSTRAW Comrade Jacob Kaura and Okwara Coleman at the end of the special National Executive Council/Delegates Conference which celebrated it’s new national leadership of the union held at Falala hotel Gusau, Zamfara State capital.
It further contained a recommendation that the federal government should consider the inability of low income earners who were the largest part of the country’s population, could not sustain the consequences to be created by the increase of the fuel price.
The communique reads parts as “NEC in session calls on federal government to reverse the recent increment in petrol pump price in order not to be seen as insensitive to the plight of the suffering masses in the country”.
The conference has however, called on federal government as a matter of securing educated society as expected, not to hesitate in resolving the demands pasted by the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) with a view for students to resume lectures immediately across the nation.
The NEC also called on the hosting Governor Matawalle to throw more weight on the existing efforts towards improving welfares of the Zamfara State civil servants, to ensure implementation of the approved new thirty thousand naira(N30.000) minimum wage in the state.
