The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Wabba, Monday said that the congress is planning to embark on a one-day protest against the high level of corruption that had been going on in the country.
Speaking at the opening of the 2015 NLC Rain School in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital with the theme “The Labour Movement and the Politics of Change in Nigeria”, Wabba said that the protest will be an expression of anger and total condemnation of corruption in Nigeria.
According to him, the Congress National Executive Council will hold in a few days’ time in Abuja where the congress leadership would ask National Executive Council of the union to declare a National Protest Action on corruption.
“The Congress National Executive Council will hold in a few days’ time in Abuja; the congress leadership will ask NEC to declare a day of National Protest Action to highlight our anger at the massive corruption and bad governance of the recent past.
“And make our case that all stolen wealth must be recovered, and those involved, face appropriate punishment for their crime,” Wabba said.
