NLC threatens to mobilise workers against government

With a promise to align with the House of Representatives to ensure the prosecution of those indicted in the N1.07 trillion scam uncovered in the management of the Petroleum Subsidy Fund, organised Labour yesterday warned against sweeping the subsidy probe report under the carpet. The workers umbrella body urged the Federal Government to ensure the culprits are not only brought to book, but made to refund the funds they illegal collected as recommended by the House ad-hoc committee, led by Farouk Lawan.

President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Abdulwaheed Omar,who gave the warning yesterday at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the National Union of Food, Beverage and Tobacco Employees (NUFBTE) in Abeokuta, Ogun State spoke of the importance of ridding the country of corrupt practices.  Omar, said labour will mobilise NIgerians to resist every attempts by top government officials and some vested interest outside government, who want to continue to enslave and impoverish the masses.
