Nigeria In One Minute

Stop Giving Bailouts To Govs, Labour Tells PMB



Organised labour in the country yesterday implored President Muhammadu Buhari not to release further bailout funds to governors of the 36 states of the federation until they are made to account for the funds already released to them.

The workers under the auspices of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) also vowed to begin massive protests in states that have refused to use the bailouts funds released to them by the federal government to settle workers’ salaries.

President of the NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, who spoke to LEADERSHIP on the development yesterday, said the president has shown clearly that he understands the plights of the workers.

In a telephone chat with LEADERSHIP correspondent, Wabba said, “We understand that their going to the president was to ask for further bailouts but clearly this has shown that it is not about just releasing money to them. They must first give account of what has been released to them.
