The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has called on Nigerians to take control of their own fate instead of relying on the Nigerian Labour unions to lead them in the fight against the continuous increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol, since 2015.

As the umbrella association representing all registered political parties and political associations in the country, the CNPP expressed doubt in the trustworthiness of the labor movement.

In a statement signed by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, James Ezema, the CNPP stated that the labor movement has consistently failed to protect the interests of the masses, who form the majority of their membership.

In response to the upcoming nationwide strike planned by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and its affiliates to protest the hardship caused by the fuel subsidy removal, the CNPP expressed its concern and emphasized the need for Nigerians to take a more proactive role in shaping their destiny.

“Nigerians in the past have had their hopes dashed each time the labour unions led negotiations with government on their behalf on any issues bordering on their well-being or pains.

“The CNPP believes that only the Nigerian masses who bear the brunt of economic hardships as well as the increasing pains of long the long years bad leadership that can decide their own faith by taking their destiny into their hands.

“Like they have done each time they claimed to stand up for the masses, the labour unions will certainly betray the trust of the working class,” the statement said.
