Nationwide Strike: Presidency knocks labour

Spread the news

The Presidency has condemned the ongoing nationwide strike by members of the NLC and the TUC.

The labour unions last week went on strike over the assault on the NLC President, Joe Ajaero, during a protest in Imo State.

Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, in a statement said: “Calling out workers on a national strike over a personal issue of a labour leader despite a clear court order against any industrial action amounts to an abuse of privilege.

Power at any level should never be used to settle personal scores. Rather, it should be used to promote collective progress and advance national interest.

This flagrant disobedience to court order & lack of respect for the judiciary should not be what the organised Labour would champion.

This decision by the NLC and TUC other than being an ego tripping move is clearly unwarranted.
