The Vice President of a faction of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Amechi Asugwuni, on Tuesday, said that the Ayuba Wabba-led faction of the NLC is the only legitimate NLC, saying that the Joe Ajaero faction has no credibility.
Asugwuni, who said this while speaking on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily, insisted that NLC isn’t divided.
“NLC is one in Nigeria. So when I see people talk about faction, they are trying to play down on Nigeria’s constitution,” he said.
“Looking at the Federal Government through the comrade governor, Adams Oshiomhole, giving recognition to an impersonator also looks criminal. As far as we are concerned, it must be discouraged.
Speaking further on the division in the NLC, Asugwuni said “I watched Ajaero talk and you can see his posture. It was a stage-managed interview trying to divide the opinion of people but they can’t stand.
“Nigerian Labour Congress is one and we have one office, one President who is Comrade Ayuba Wabba, and who is right there in his office.
“The just concluded May Day, the federal government was represented and they were there. So how can they turn back now? Because you want to divide the house, you start recognizing people you already know are neither here nor there.”
