“We are calling on the NLC to realise that deregulation is inevitable. It remains the surest way to bring back our economy to normalcy.

“There is no country in the world that can sustain its economy without deregulating it.”

IPMAN advised Nigerians to cooperate with the government in ensuring that our economy grows,.

The NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had jointly announced a nationwide strike from Sept 28 over the recent hikes in electricity tariffs and petrol pump price.
