Nigeria Labour Congress To Protest At Ngige’s Office Today



Barely few days after an attack by thugs suspected to have been sent by the minister of labour and productivity, Chris Ngige on protesting members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the union has vowed to stage a comeback against the minister on Monday.

A circular sent to all the affiliated unions, signed by the President of NLC, Mr. Ayuba Wabba and obtained by our SaharaReporters said that the organised labour would picket the office of Ngige for undermining and disparaging the collective sensibilities of Nigerian workers.

The NLC accused Ngige of organising his political bandits to attack Nigerian workers when his resident in Abuja was picketed last week.

Wabba alleged that Ngige had been scheming relentlessly to push Comrade Frank Kokori out of office as the Chairman of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund ( NSITF) by refusing to inaugurate the board with Kokori as head.

The circular added: “This is brazen continuation of Ngige’s antics and machinations against the common interest of the Nigerian workers, which obviously played out with his subversive and divisive tendencies all throughout the negotiation period for a new minimum wage.

“Tomorrow will go down in history that there was once a Minister of Labour that was picketed out of office and circulation.”

Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) on assumption of duty in 2018 had singled out Ngige and the Minister of State for Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika for refusing to inaugurate board of directors despite their nomination and approval by President Muhammadu Buhari.

At a point, Oshiomhole threatened to sanction the two ministers, but despite the threat, none of the duo had inaugurated the board of directors in their various ministries.

Kwara: Gov. Ahmed speaks on ‘moving’ State-owned property out of Government House

The Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed-led Kwara State Government has denied moving State-owned property out of the Government House.

The Government, in a statement to DAILY POST on Monday, dismissed the story making the rounds in some quarters as false news.

It was reported that Gov Ahmed and some other government officials in the Government House, Ilorin were moving government property just few days to the end of their tenure.

However, in a brief statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Dr Muyideen Akorede, the government said what was being erroneously circulated were images of a truck load of charity (Zakat) items provided by Alhaji Aliko Dangote through his foundation which were being taken out of government house for distribution to people in keeping with the annual practice.

The statement added, “Clearly, those were not government property. For the record, all government property inside government house are bar-coded and contained in an inventory which will be handed over to the incoming government.”
