I’m So Sorry, Abure Begs NLC President, Ajaero, Wants Reconciliation

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The Labour Party National Chairman, Julius Abure, has apologized to the national president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to put aside all their quarrels and work together for the interest of the party.

Abure made the appeal at his life at his Abuja residence.

According to him” Consequently, I want to appeal first to my brother, friend and Joe Ajaero, President of the NLC whom we have worked together in the trenches over the years in the struggle for workers, to put aside whatever may be his grievances. Let’s work in the interest of our people.

“Fighting the Labour Party is uncalled for and unwarranted, especially at this time when the working people of Nigeria are suffering.

“As we speak today, the minimum wage is still N30,000. There are unfair workers practices by employers across the country. The inflation in Nigeria is unprecedented and nobody talks about workers welfare.

“For us, we need to team up together to be able to fight for better working conditions for our people.

“We need not waste or dissipate our collective energies in fighting ourselves over nothing.

“The NLC should know by now that the attempt being made to take over the leadership of the party will not work. It is my appeal that working together is better.”

The LP national chairman therefore urged the union leader to put aside his grievances and support their effort to rebuild the country in the interest of Nigerians.

Recall that both Abure and Ajaero had been at each other’s neck following several attempts made by the congress to take control of the party structure over claims the embattled LP chairman was running a one-man show amid allegations of financial malfeasance.

The LP camp had also made a counterclaim that Ajaero was desperately seeking to evict the Abure-led National Working Committee with an ulterior motive to use the party as a transactional platform ahead of the 2027 election.
