The President of United Labour Congress of Nigeria (ULC), Joe Ajaero, has vowed to deal with Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State over his anti-labour postures in recent times.
Ajaero, who is also the president of the National Union of Electricity Employees, stated this while speaking to newsmen in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
He said El-Rufai’s recent indefensible sack of workers and the report to move wages matter to the concurrent list by the All Progressives Congress (APC) committee on restructuring he headed would not go unpunished.
Ajaero said: “They think labour is just civil or public servants in their states and that is why they recommended putting it on the concurrent list. He even went further to say civil servants do not deserve N18,000 minimum wage.
“Labour is more than that. Like National Union of Electricity Employees, do we have employees that El-Rufai controls, no! They are purely national. And these are people that are part of labour, so at what point can you now pass it to a state?”
“All these are to be considered to teach El-Rufai a lesson that other governor will follow him to set that bad example. There will be an opportunity to deal with him and it will be difficult for him to seek re-election,” he added when responding to the competence test the Kaduna governor recently administered on teachers in the state.
