Boom RadioNG | March 20, 2024

In a dramatic turn of events, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) staged a protest at the national secretariat of the Labour Party in Abuja, demanding the cancellation of the party’s upcoming national convention slated for the end of the month. The NLC leadership, led by their officials, vociferously called for the ousting of the National Chairman, Julius Abure, accusing him of orchestrating a clandestine convention without the involvement of key stakeholders.

The planned convention has ignited a contentious rift between Abure and major stakeholders, including the NLC and the House of Representatives caucus. Workers vehemently accuse Abure of a calculated attempt to undermine the integrity of the Labour Party, further exacerbating tensions within the political sphere.

Despite the NLC’s fervent protest, law enforcement officials barred entry to the party secretariat, intensifying the standoff between the aggrieved workers and the party leadership.

In response to these developments, the National Working Committee of the Labour Party issued a rebuttal, refuting claims made by Ajaero, a key figure within the NLC. The NWC accused Ajaero of attempting to seize control by instigating the removal of Abure from his position.

The situation has escalated, with the political arm of the NLC condemning the planned convention as illegitimate and demanding Abure’s immediate resignation. They advocate for the establishment of a caretaker transition committee to oversee a transparent and inclusive national convention.

Amidst this turmoil, the Labour Party leadership contends that the NLC’s directive is driven by Ajaero’s personal aspirations, casting doubt on the motives behind the protest.

Stay tuned for further updates as tensions continue to rise within the Labour Party, signaling a critical juncture in the Nigerian political landscape.
