FBN Holdings Appoints Five New Directors As Otedola Takes Over

The National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP) Comrade Julius Abure, has warned the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Joe Ajaero, against utilizing the NLC’s platform, finances, and assets for his aspirations to vie for the presidency in 2027 or the governorship of Imo State.

Abure issued this warning in Asaba, Delta State on Wednesday in response to the closure of the Labour Party’s National Headquarters by protesting NLC members. The protesters were calling for his swift removal as the National Chairman of the party.

He said: “I must state today that the leadership of NLC under Joe Ajaero is on the part of destroying the successes we have recorded in the 2023 general election.

“I had expected that as a responsible trade union centre, a responsible labour leader; number one should have teamed up with Labour Party to see how we can team up together to make the country better.

Abure continued, “Unfortunately and ironically too, the NLC is the one that is on the part of war against Labour Party. I must state clearly that Ajaero as NLC President has not been able to organise a successful strike action. Not even a single protest or even picketing government establishment in order to bring government to accede to the numerous requests of workers.

“As we speak, there are unfair labour practices meted out to workers by several organisations in the country. I have not seen Joe Ajaero go to such organisations to picket them.”

While stressing that Joe Ajaero is not officially affiliated with the Labour Party, Abure clarified that the party is not under the ownership of the NLC as asserted by the labor union.

He said: “Over the past few years, NLC has been claiming ownership of Labour Party. l must state clearly that NLC is not the owner of Labour Party. The party is not owned by NLC.
