Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has declared National President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Wabba, and other members of the union wanted.
El-Rufai, who pledged his prosecution under the Miscellaneous Offences Act, accused the Nigerian Labour Congress and its leaders as saboteurs after the halt in economic activities due to an ongoing industrial action.
He made this disclosure via a tweet on Tuesday, saying, “KADUNA UPDATE: Ayuba Wabba & others of NLC declared wanted for economic sabotage & attacks on public infrastructure under Miscellaneous Offences Act.
“Anyone that knows where he is hiding should send a message to Ministry of Justice, Kaduna. There will be a handsome reward!”, El-Rufai tweeted.
It was gathered that Wabba in his remarks, on Monday, commended the workers, saying there will be no retreat or surrender by the organized labour to ensure the realisation of their demands is met by the El-Rufai led government.
According to the labour leader, “the 5-day warning strike in Kaduna state is a decision of the highest body of labour, the decision has been communicated to all security agencies of government. It is the beginning of the struggle of labour, hope our politicians will cooperate with us to ensure we protect our democracy by delivering its dividends to the citizens including workers.”
