By Samuel Oyadongha
YENAGOA -THE Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide has thrown its weight behind the move by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to reject the Federal Government planned removal of petroleum subsidy and increase the price of fuel pump price to N234 per litre.
It described the proposed increase in fuel price as a sign of failed and inconsistent economic policies of President Muhammadu Buhari administration and deliberate attempt to worsen the misery of Nigerians including the institutionalization of poverty, unnemployment and insecurity.
