Representatives of the Federal Government are expected to meet with the Trade Union Congress by 4 p.m. today at the State House, Abuja, over the removal of fuel subsidy.
The TUC Secretary General, Nuhu Toro made the disclosure in an interview with our correspondent on Sunday. The meeting is a follow-up to the earlier meeting with the organized labour which ended in a deadlock.
