…Pledges to stage ‘Mother of all Rallies’ in Kaduna

 

PRESIDENT, Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC,
Ayuba Wabba has accused the Kaduna State
governor, Mallm Nasir El-Rufai of directing
the Sole Administrators in the 21 local
governments in the state to use the resources
of the local governments to mobilise thugs to
Kaduna metropolis to demonstrate in support
of his obnoxious policy on the mass sack of
workers.
While condemning the said directive, he
however advised the Governor, to put the
money in to more fruitful or beneficial use
of Kaduna State people instead of the brazen
profligacy.
Wabba also advised the youths of the state
not to allow themselves to be used by the
Governor as it is the jobs of their parents that
are being put on the line, stressing that no
amount of money can make up for the means
of livelihood of their parents or guardians;
thus they should shun this inducement.
“We have credible information that the
Governor of Kaduna State has directed the Sole

Administrators in the 21 local governments
in the state to use the resources of the local
governments to mobilise thugs to Kaduna
metropolis to demonstrate in support of his
obnoxious policy on the mass sack of workers.
“We at the Nigeria Labour Congress
condemn the use of public funds for the
pursuit of nihilistic and sadistic agenda. It is
criminal and goes against the grain of civilised
behaviour and transparency.
“It is equally the height of hypocrisy,
impunity, moral turpitude and selfrighteousness.
We advise the Governor to put
this money to more fruitful or beneficial use
of Kaduna State people instead of this brazen
profligacy.
Speaking further, he reiterated the Congress
commitment to explore all legal means
available to resist any malevolent, inhuman
and unlawful policies.
“On our part, we would want to sound
a note of caution to the Governor. After
our Wednesday rally, we had thought he
had seen the hand writing on the wall….
the overwhelming resentment against his

unpopular and self-serving policies.
“His resolve to rent youths/crowds
with scarce public funds (from the local
governments where he has created
starvation, unemployment and want),
instead of tactical withdrawal, clearly
suggests how far gone he is on a mission
of self-immolation as well as on a mission
to destroy careers, means of livelihood and
homes.
“We want to re-assure him we will resist
his malevolent, inhuman and unlawful
policies with all the lawful means available
to us.” Said Wabba
The NLC President disclosed that plans
are underway to stage what he termed
“Mother of all Rallies” as mobilization of
workers is in progress.
“Accordingly, he should be ready to keep
a date with us in a mother of all rallies as
we mobilise workers, pensioners, and our
civil society allies across the country to the
state. It is a date we intend to keep with
him except he advises himself wisely.” Said
Wabba.
