The recent increase in the pump price of fuel and electricity tariff has received reaction from an unusual sector.
The Onitsha Association of commercial sex workers; Anambra state, Nigeria, has issued a stern warning to the Federal Government to revert to the old prices , else, they would go on an indefinite strike.
The sex workers under the umbrella of Self-made Women Of Substance, through their patron, Uto Nwanyi stated that, the recent hike, came at the wrong time when they are still battling with the adverse economic effects of corona virus.
In her words, she said “the issue of Coronavirus started in March this year, and lasted for four months. Throughout the period, our members went out of business; no patronage of any kind; none of our members was able to meet up with personal needs
In addition, Nwanyi said“When we were yet to recover from the Coronavirus, the Federal Government came up with their pump price increment. Electricity companies also came up with tariff hike. This led to increase in house rent, transportation and general cost of living. The situation bites us more than it affects any other group in Nigeria. Therefore, we are of the opinion that the situation be reversed within seven days”…
She categorically stated that if the price hike is not reversed immediately, they would definitely mobilize themselves for an indefinite strike and if it doesn’t yield results, they might be forced to increase their charges.
In conclusion, the patron said; “If that is not done, we shall mobilise our members for indefinite strike from October 1. If our strike fails to achieve its purpose, we shall go back to work, and increase service charge to as much as 200 per cent. After COVID-19, we reduced our service charge to N1,500 for short-time and N5,000 for day break, but with this development, we shall also review our service charge.”
