2019 elections: NLC to kick out politicians against minimum Wage

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has announced its intention to vote out any politician against the payment of minimum Wage.

The President of the Congress, Wabba Ayuba, made this known to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday. He called on workers all over the country to obtain their voter’s card in order to carry out the threat.

Quoting him;

“We must prepare to vote out governors or any political office holder who is refusing to pay us salary. We must continue to lament. We have the power, so we must use it this time.Workers, pensioners and their households who are in one way or the other suffering the inhumane treatment of non-payment of workers’ wages must unite and vote these politicians out of office in the next election.”

“Therefore, we all must in solidarity play our part in order to achieve success, so commitment which will, of course, bring us to working together is the key.And every leader no matter the union or association in the labour movement must consciously see, the welfare of its members as very essential in all we do.

“It is therefore important that anytime we have a need for national action, all affiliates must deem it sacrosanct to mobilise it members for such action.”
