Kaduna State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the United Labour Congress, ULC, have resolved to end their years of disagreement and work together as one body to protect the interest of workers in the state.
Both factional bodies agreed to work as a united body under the NLC with a total commitment to vigorously pursue workers’ welfare.
Addressing journalists shortly after a joint state executive council reconciliation meeting at the Textile Labour House in Kaduna, state chairman of NLC, Comrade Ayuba Magaji Suleiman and chairman of the ULC, Comrade Ephraim James Jonah, said the reconciliation would make the labour movement stronger and more united.
According to the NLC chairman, “We are here to inaugurate the reunion of NLC and ULC as one Congress after the decision of the NLC national secretariat. At the NLC NEC meeting on July 16, 2020, the two parties came together to hold joint NEC meeting and inaugurate the two factions into one entity.
“All parties have given their consent and agreed to work together. Kaduna state NLC council has inaugurated the reunion of the two labour centres. From today in Kaduna State, we have only one NLC with over 50 affiliates. Our coming together will give us more strength and unity and the workers will be loyal to support the struggle of NLC to fight for the welfare of ordinary workers.
“We have resolved to include the state executive of the ULC in the NLC, the state chairman of ULC, Comrade Ephraim James Jonah is now the state Vice chairman of NLC, Yahaya Danladi of Nupeng is now ex-officio of NLC, while women leader of the ULC, Eloho Otako is now ex-officio of NLC,” he said.
Commenting on the reunion, Jonah expressed delight that despite several failed attempts, the two labour centres have finally reconciled.
“After falling apart in 2015, there were series of failed attempts to reconcile the unions. But at the national level they thought it’s wise to resolve the issue because the masses are at the losing end,” he said.
