NLC President Dares El-Rufai, Leads Protesters To Kaduna Govt House
The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Wabba, is currently leading union members to the Kaduna State Government House.
This is after Governor Nasir El-Rufai declared the labour leader and others wanted for “economic sabotage” and attack on public infrastructure.
Daily Trust reports that a large crowd, led by Wabba, is marching through Waff road in Kaduna and heading towards the government house.
Recall that the Kaduna State Government has declared the chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba, and others wanted.
Wabba had on Monday led workers in the state on a warning strike to force the state Governor, Malam Nasir El-rufai, to rescind his decision to sack workers in the state.
The action by NLC led to the grounding of economic and social activities in the state with workers in the railway, aviation, medical sector and others joining the protest staged by the Congress.
Reacting, Governor El-rufai, in a tweet yesterday, said the NLC and its protest displayed some unlawful actions. He accused the Congress of “shutting down electricity, coercion and restraints of personal freedom, trespass into public facilities and denial of access to healthcare for several of our citizens.”
