The meeting is the first of its kind since Tinubu took over from former President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, May 29.

On Wednesday, May 31, Tinubu met with Abdulrasheed Bawa, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), at the presidential villa.

Recall that while delivering his inaugural speech on Monday, Tinubu promised to make security his priority.

NLC rejection, Alake's optimism, 3 other take aways from Tinubu's meeting with Labour earlier reported that following President Bola Tinubu's pronouncement on Monday, May 29, that "fuel subsidy is gone", oil marketers have reacted as many filling stations have immediately closed and others have inflated the price of petrol by over 100%.

For over 72 hours now, the oil marketers have held the country to ransom after the pronouncement by President Tinubu that the previous administration did not make provision for subsidy in the 2023 budget, therefore, it was gone.
