Strike: President Ajaero turned NLC into tribal group to support Peter Obi – Omokri alleges


Reno Omokri, a socio-political activist, has accused the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, President, Joe Ajaero of turning the body into a tribal union.


Omokri claimed that Ajaero turned the NLC into a union that supported the presidential ambition of the 2023 Labour Party, LP, candidate, Peter Obi.


He claimed that Ajaero would undermine any administration not presided over by Obi.


Tweeting, Omokri wrote: “Does it not constitute a conflict of interests to have as President of the Nigerian Labour Congress, a man like Joe Ajaero, who campaigned for and endorsed Peter Obi for President? Obviously, the man cannot be neutral.


“He will be interested in undermining any government not presided over by Peter Obi.


“He is an Obidient, and Nigerians should not be obedient to him. He is turning the NLC into a tribal parapo union in support of Peter Obi’s ambition.”


Omokri’s claims follow threats by the NLC to embark on an indefinite strike over relief measures for fuel subsidy removal.


Ajaero had said the federal government had more than enough time to resolve the dispute and address the concerns of the labour movement but chose not to do so.
