NLC: Ajaero group not known to us -FG



Minister of Labour and Productivity, Senator Joe Danlami Ikenyi,has stated that the Federal Government does not recognize the election held by a faction of the Nigeria Labour Congress, led by Comrade Joe Ajaero of the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE).

The minster who stated this during a courtesy visit by the current NLC leadership headed by Comrade Ayuba Wabba, in Abuja on Friday, said that the Ajaero group only exists on the pages of newspapers.

“We have not heard and we have not gotten any letter from anywhere in respect of any other NLC and it was in the cable of every Nigerian that there was an election here in Abuja and our ministry participated in monitoring the process of the election,” he said.

“Therefore we will not run into controversy because that is your internal issue, the ministry is not part of it and we know that you will sort yourselves out because there is a process and I know that all of you know that process,” Ikenyi added.

Ikenyi called on the new leadership to always engage the government in dialogue over all issues bordering on workers and national well-being.
