Comrade Joe Ajaero, the national chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has said ordinary Nigerians are undergoing scorching hardship as a result of President Bola Tinubu’s economic reforms.

He stated this in Abuja on Thursday while speaking at the 21st Daily Trust Dialogue with the theme ‘Tinubu’s Economic Reforms: Gainers and Losers.’

The labour leader, who was referring to the federal government’s twin policies of the petrol subsidy removal and the currency floating, said it was not too early to measure the indices of failure as well as that of winning.

The labour leader said the Nigerian masses were the losers because they were once buying petrol at N187 per litre, but now doing so at N700 per litre.

He said “It took former President Muhammadu Buhari eight years to move from N260/dollar to N700/dollar, within six months, it moved from N700/dollar to N1, 350/dollar under Tinubu. So, who are the losers?.

According to him, the masses are suffering because there is no increase in salaries and wages.

He described the government’s policy in the oil and gas and power sector as “Public disaster and private gain.”
