The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, says its earlier planned nationwide action over the removal of fuel subsidy was allegedly sabotaged by an abnormal injunction procured and served on NLC in “unholy circumstances.
President of the NLC, Comrade Joe Ajaero disclosed this in a statement on Friday.
He accused the courts in the country of being responsible for the present sufferings; hardships and underdevelopment the citizenry are passing through.
NLC also urged Nigerians to disregard the alleged state-sponsored rallies aimed at enslaving workers,
“Whether this antics of manipulating the Courts to sabotage our collective resolve will work this time is going to be left in the hands of Nigerians and the seriousness with which they see the imminent peril which our lives are being subjected to. That is why we want Nigerian workers and Nigerian people to blame all our present sufferings, hardships and underdevelopment on the Courts,” he said.
“It is said that after the rain comes shine! Today, it is shining brighter and brighter! At the end of every journey is a time of reckoning and a time to say goodbyes! Time to evaluate what has been done and what has been accomplished! We have all spent a fruitful week learning new skills and getting empowered for the battle ahead; the struggles for a more humane and inclusive globe where workers will no longer be seen as appendages but as critical players towards greater wealth creation and development,” he added.
