NLC Criticizes Tinubu's Administration for Unfulfilled Promises in 2023

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has expressed disappointment, stating that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government has failed to uphold its promises to workers in 2023.

In a recent statement, Joe Ajaero, the President of the NLC, criticized the federal government for not honoring agreements with Nigerian workers. Despite the patience exhibited by the labor unions, the NLC accuses Tinubu’s administration of being unfaithful to the commitments made to the workforce.

Ajaero noted that members of the Union “have faced uncertainties, overcome obstacles, and witnessed moments that may have left them feeling disheartened.”

According to him, the government had failed to live up to expectations on the promise of an N35,000 provisional wage for three months, completion of the Port Harcourt refinery, and implementation of the Compressed Natural Gas initiative.

“Whether these have been faithfully implemented is open to every discerning Nigerian.

“The N35,000 Wage Award has not been faithfully implemented; the Port Harcourt PH refinery has not come on stream as projected while the National Minimum Wage Negotiation Council has not been inaugurated as agreed; agents of government have distorted the Compressed Natural Gas CNG project for the benefit of a few,” he said.

DAILY POST recalls that the organized labour comprising the NLC and Trade Union Congress, TUC, declared a nationwide strike over fuel subsidy removal in September.
