JUST IN: No Retreat, No Surrender, Labour Tells Reps

By Damilola Adeyemo

ABUJA – The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has said Organized Labour will continue its current protest in all the states of the federation as the first line of action.

In a statement, Ayuba Wabba, President  Nigeria Labour Congress, said “Our prayer goes to the leadership of the House of Representatives. We implore that this toxic and anti-masses bill should not enjoy any form of support from the honorable house of the Nigerian people – the House of Representatives. The bill should be killed immediately.

“Organised Labour will continue its current protest in all the states of the federation as a first line of action. Subsequently, if our elected political leaders remain adamant to the plea of Nigerian workers to retain the National Minimum Wage in the Exclusive Legislative List, we will have no other option but to withdraw our services. This will only be the beginning of popular resistance against this agenda of neo-colonization and mass enslavement of the Nigerian people”

But Gbajabiamila cautioned against any form of strike, assuring that “the House will do what is right”.
