NLC Denies Endorsing New Coalition
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has denied ever endorsing the newly formed coalition, Grand National Coalition of National Intervention Movement.
In a statement, its National President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, said: “I have found it necessary to issue an immediate and emphatic rebuttal to the story by the Sahara Reporters that I, Ayuba Wabba, mni, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress has endorsed or was part of a meeting that endorsed the Grand National Coalition (GNC) of the National Intervention Movement.”
He said there is a clear procedure for affiliating, endorsing or consorting with any social or political group outside the NLC.
“To the best of my knowledge, the issue of affiliating, endorsing or consorting with NIM was not debated in any of our organ meetings or the Labour Party.
“This is without prejudice to the right of any individual or individuals to exercise in their favour, the right of freedom of association as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution (as amended),” Ayuba said.
Ayuba said in spite of his respect for the individuals, who attended the said meeting, he has not been attending the meetings of NIM.
