A former Chairman, Trade Union Congress (TUC) in Kwara, Mr lsrael Adebisi, has urged Federal Government to resuscitate the four refineries in Nigeria to halt fuel importation.
Adebisi made the call on Friday, while addressing newsmen on the new pump price of N143 per litre for petrol in llorin.
According to him, resuscitation of the four refineries will save the country from fuel importation and scarce foreign exchange, thus boosting the economy.
Adebisi then called on the Federal Government to rescind its decision and bring down the price of petrol, as demanded by the masses.
He noted that inability of the four refineries to work effectively had been a major challenge facing the nation.
The former union chairman said that the repair would generate employment for the Nigerian youths.
Two motorists in llorin, Mr Mufutau Ahmed and Mrs lyabo Mohammed, decried the upward review of the fuel price.
They noted that the price adjustment would bring more hardship on Nigerians.
