Between El-Rufai And NLC: Wabba, Others Union Leaders On Kaduna Government Wanted List

President, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba

Following their protest against the government decision to sack some workers in the state, Kaduna State governor, Nasir Elrufai has declared the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba wanted.

The state Governor, Nasir Elrufai, who announced this on his verified Twitter handle @elrufai on Tuesday morning, also included some other union leaders on the wanted list.

The allegations leveled against NLC president and others labour leaders are economic sabotage and attacks on public infrastructure in Kaduna State under the Miscellaneous Offences Act.

The governor called on anyone that knows the whereabouts of the NLC President to contact the Kaduna State Ministry of Justice, promising to reward the person handsomely.

Wabba had earlier on Monday led workers in the state on a warning strike following the recent disengagement of over seven thousand civil servants at the state and local governments by the state government.

The protest resulted in a power outage, shut down of the airport, and fuel queues in various parts of the state as aviation workers shut down operations of Kaduna International Airport (KIA) in solidarity.

Other affiliate unions including the National Union of Petroleum Employees of Nigeria (NUPENG), National Union of Electricity Employees of Nigeria (NUEE), National Union of Textile, Tailoring and Garment Workers of Nigeria also joined the protest.
