NLC Writes Ngige To Withdraw CONUA, NAMDA Certificates

Written by on October 11, 2022

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, to respect the stipulations of the Trade Unions Act regarding registration of new trade unions where one already exists by withdrawing the certificates of registration he recently issued to the two newly created unions that were previously part of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

NLC also presented evidence that the Labour Ministry had in 2013 under former Minister of Labour, Chief Emeka Wogu and the Registrar of Trade Union, Mrs N. Mbogu, turned down the registration of Academic Staff Union of Inter-University Centres who were members of an already existing Academic Staff Union of Research Institutions (ASURI).

Tribune reports that the labour union is demanding  that the labour minister  respects the doctrine of the Rule of law especially the clear provisions of labour laws cited and withdraw the Certificate of Registration issued to the two new trade unions.”
