BREAKING: NLC, TUC Order Worker Not To Go To Work After NLC President Was Beaten To Stupor

In a joint press release issued and signed by Comrade Kayode Martins (NLC Chairperson) and Comrade Bosun Olabiyi Agoro (TUC Chairman) on Friday, the Oyo State chapters of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have issued a directive urging workers to abstain from work on Monday.

News ToGo reports that the unions have called upon all employees in the state to refrain from attending their workplaces on Monday and instead assemble at the NLC secretariat for a congress. The statement stressed that in light of the state government’s failure to offer a lasting solution to their grievances within the specified timeframe, workers should clear their personal belongings from their offices on Friday and gather at the NLC secretariat, located at Agodi Gate, in Ibadan on Monday. Additionally, the unions extended an invitation to pensioners in the state to participate in the assembly.

Strongly condemning the recent assault on NLC President Comrade Joe Ajaero in Imo State, the statement denounced it as a violation of the fundamental rights and liberties of the Nigerian labor force. It highlighted the incident as an alarming demonstration of tyrannical tendencies displayed by some state governments towards the labor movement. The unions reiterated their steadfast dedication to safeguarding the rights and welfare of workers in Oyo State and across Nigeria.

The unions statement partly read, “We, the Oyo State Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), stand united and strongly condemn in totality the recent attack on the National President of the Nigeria Labour Congress by the Nigerian Police in Imo State on Wednesday 2nd November 2023 by the hopeless Government of Hope Uzodinma and police Force.

“We view this egregious incident as an affront to the fundamental rights and liberties of the Nigerian labour force and an alarming manifestation of the tyrannical tendencies displayed by some State Governments towards the labour movement.”

 

“In conclusion, we, the Oyo State NLC and TUC, wish to make it clear that we will not take this attack on the National President of the NLC or any Labour Leader lightly. We stand resolute in our commitment to defending the rights and welfare of workers in Oyo State and throughout Nigeria.”

“After the expiration of the ultimatum served on the State Government who are yet to proffer lasting solution to our grievances, all workers should pick all their personal belongings from office on Friday 3rd November 2023 and pensioners in the state are to resume at NLC Secretariat Agodi Gate on Monday 6th November 2023 for the largest congress in the history of Oyo state for further directive,”
