President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, AYUBA WABBA has sued for calm among members of the union in the face of the latest threat to its unity.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja on Monday, WABBA promised that the leadership of the union would do all within its power to preserve the unity of the country’s labour movement.
He spoke in reaction to an attempt by some labour leaders to form a parallel body known as United Labour Congress in which the General Secretary, National Union of Electricity Employees, JOE AJERO was elected as its president.
WABBA said that AJAERO and IGWE ACHESE, the President, Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Worker who emerged Deputy President of ULC, were behind the breakaway attempt.
The NLC president also vowed to ensure that no member was pulled out of the congress without their consent adding that the relevant organs of the NLC would soon meet to review the latest challenge posed to its unity.
