BREAKING: El-Rufai Declares NLC President, Others Wanted
POLITICS DIGEST – Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has declared National President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Wabba, and other leaders of the union wanted.
They were declared wanted for economic sabotage and attacks on public infrastructure under Miscellaneous Offences Act.
El-Rufai, in a tweet on Tuesday morning, May 18, 2021, said: “Ayuba Wabba & others of @NLCHeadquarters 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 @MOJKaduna. KDSG. There will be a handsome reward!”
In another tweet, he said: “…The reform of the size, cost & quality of over bloated, inefficient & barely educated public service is at stake here. We will neither retreat nor concede to any thoughtless & corrupt political hacks ever!”
The state government had said the five-day warning strike by the NLC, which began on Monday, will not distract it from its plan to ‘rightsize’ the civil service.
But Wabba, who addressed civil servants in the state on Monday, vowed to bring the El-Rufai’s administration to its knees until the sacked workers are recalled. (Adapted from a report by The Nation)
