Again ,NLC Tackles Ngige, Rejects Registration Of New Academic Unions
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on October 21, 2022
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has again tackled the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige over the registration of two new academic unions in the Nigerian public university system.
It is recalled that Ngige wrote to the NLC on Tuesday, urging the labour leaders to rescind its opposition to the registration of two new academic unions in the Nigerian public university system.
But in a letter to the Minister, the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, demanded for the withdrawal of the letters issued to the unions, on the grounds that their registration contravened the laws guiding trade unionism.
In the latest development, labour insist that the alleged biased attempt of the minister to re-group an existing trade union or actually individuals in utter disregard to tripartism which is a core pillar of the ILO is an attempt to interfere with, infiltrate and balkanize an existing trade union – at best to score on vendetta and at worst to destroy cordial industrial relations in Nigeria.
