Picketing: Abure Mocks NLC ‘Rascals’ As Crisis Takes New Twist – Lifestyle Nigeria

Mr Julius Abure, the National Chairman of Labour Party (LP) has faulted Wednesday’s picketing of the National Secretariat of the party by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) saying it is a show of shame.
This is contained in a statement by Mr Obiora Ifoh, the LP National Publicity Secretary on Thursday in Abuja.

Abure also described the action of the NLC as a show of rascality, an abuse of office and an abuse of the law of the land.

“Where they besieged the office, broke the fence, destroy the gates, unlawfully took possession of the Secretariat and destroyed properties worth millions of naira.

“Properties stolen including monies made for the payment of salaries and other official purposes. This is unfortunate.

“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; he should have teamed up with Labour Party to see how we can team up together to make the country better,” he said.
Abure added: “Unfortunately and ironically too, the NLC is the one that is on the part of war against LP.

“I must state clearly that Ajaero as NLC President has not been able to organise a successful strike action,” Abure mocked.

“Not even a single protest or even picketing government establishment in order to bring government to accede to the numerous requests of workers.
