Rightsising: The NLC showed in 2017 that it has no interest in public welfare – KDSG
May 17, 2021
Kaduna State Government has affirmed that the conditions that compelled it to rightsize are not altered by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC’s campaign of economic and social sabotage.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai in a statement on Monday said, the NLC showed in 2017 that it has no interest in public welfare by going violent over 21,780 failed teachers who KDSG replaced with 25,000.
On Saturday Governor El-Rufai in a statement said the planned strike action and shutdown are futile gestures, just like Ayuba Wabba’s bluster and histrionics in 2017.
“KDSG has notified the security agencies who would take steps to thwart the violent intent of the organisers. Apart from the restrictions imposed by Covid-19 protocols, a ban on public processions subsists in this state. This was imposed precisely because of the violence that has frequently broken out from such processions even when they began with innocent intent.
“For its part, KDSG will protect its facilities and the right of its staff to access and work in their offices. It is unlawful for anyone to try to deny them access or exit. Government offices are not the property of any trade unionist and none of them should entertain thoughts of locking up or vandalizing any facility.
