Don't use NLC's platform, funds to pursue your 2027 political ambition, Abure tells Ajaero

...Says LP not owned by NLC

....Says Ajaero not card carrying member of LP

NATIONAL Chairman of Labour Party, LP, Comrade Julius Abure, has told the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Joe Ajaero not to use the platform, funds and resources of the NLC to pursue his ambition of either becoming the president of the country in 2027 or governor of Imo State.

Abure stated this at Asaba, Delta State on Wednesday while reacting to the shutting down of the Labour Party's National Headquarters by protesting  members of the NLC who demanded for his immediate removal as National Chairman of the party.  

He said the "picketing" of the party's office was politically motivated, describing it as a show of rascality and abuse of office and the laws of the land.

He said: "I must state today that the leadership of NLC under Joe Ajaero is on the part of destroying the successes we have recorded in the 2023 general election.

"I had expected that expected that as a responsible trade union centre, a responsible labour leader number one should have teamed up with Labour Party to see how we can team up together to make the country better.

"Unfortunately and ironically too, the NLC is the one that is on the part of war against Labour Party. I must state clearly that Ajaero as NLC President has not been able to organise a successful strike action. Not even a single protest or even picketing government establishment in order to bring government to accede to the numerous requests of workers.

"As we speak, there are unfair labour practices meted out to workers by several organisations in the country. I have not seen Joe Ajaero go to such organisations to picket them."

While reiterating that Joe Ajaero is not a registered member of the Labour Party, Abure said the party is not owned by NLC as being claimed by the labour union.

He said: "Over the past few years, NLC has been claiming ownership of Labour Party. l must state clearly that NLC is not the owner of Labour Party. The party is not owned by NLC.

"The law is very clear that you cannot picket an organisation where you do not have your workers. We are not the employers of NLC and they don't have the legitimate reason to picket our office.

"We have no trade union dispute with NLC, there is no notice issued to us that we have a trade union dispute with NLC. This is clearly an abuse of office and abuse of the laws of the land."
