In the face of the minister’s outrage, Organised Labour, is raising the alarm over what it describes as last-minute looting of the treasury by out-going governors, ministers and other political office holders and called on President Muhammad Buhari to do everything possible to stop them.
Leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and their Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC, counterparts, raised the alarm in a joint address delivered at the National Workers’ Day celebration held at Eagle Square, Abuja
The two labour centres also sounded a note of warning to the incoming government that they would resist any hike in the pump price of petrol in the name of subsidy removal or any other guise.
Leaving Labour concerns to the state of play in politics, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has alerted Nigerians about the activities of persons he described as hirlings who he says were desperate to derail the quest by the Labour Party to reclaim its stolen Presidential mandate.
He says these individuals were behind attempts to destabilise the party as well as cast him and his running mate, Dr. Yusuf Baba-Ahmed in a bad light for the sole purpose of frustrating the ongoing judicial process.
Obi describes the activities of these persons as the height of rascality.
Obi notes that he was being targeted by opponents to distract him from focusing on his desire to push for a new Nigeria, insisting that the new Nigeria which he and other Obidients seek was one that can only be built on a transparent process.
