Reason Ayuba Wabba-led NLC faction adamant on strike – TUC

President of the Trade Union Congress, TUC, Comrade Kiagama Bobboi, has revealed the reason, the Ayuba Wabba-led NLC faction went on strike despite the withdrawal of other labour unions, including his.

Comrade Kiagama informed that at the beginning all the unions formed a genuine united front against the petrol price hike but it became an ego issue after the Ayuba Wabba-led NLC faction felt insulted because the federal government was involving the Comrade Joe Ajaero-led faction of the congress in the negotiation.

His word: “NLC took the strategy of government negotiating with Joe Ajaero’s faction as a slap on their face. Then I told them; let’s see this beyond personal or group interest but in the interest of Nigerians. So I didn’t see their insistence on N86 as based on patriotism but on the basis that government decided to bypass them and go into discussion with Ajaeo group which is normal for any human being.

“Considering that we have been working behind to end the factionalism within NLC and, I had expected that this negotiation would have been a genuine starting point. I believe if factionalism was not there, we would have easily solved our problem on this issue because the issue of dialogue would have continued. But the problem started with the Ajaero’s group and this is the long and short of the story.”
