The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) under the leadership of Comrade Ayuba Wanna, has ordered the federal government to release the palliatives being haorded in warehouses, to the masses with immediate effect.
Comrade Wabba maintained that even though labour is not in support of the current vandalization of properties across the country, it is incumbent on the government of the day to deliver the palliatives to the masses timely and transparently. His words per Vanguard:
It is obvious that the palliative provisions that were procured by government for immediate distribution to the mass of our people at their critical time of need and to assuage the hardship occasioned by the lockdown were hoarded and held back by some government officials. The reasons for this have not been made known to the public. We also understand that many of the palliative provisions are already getting rotten in the warehouses where they were stored ”.
Though many analysts consider the labour union as a toothless bulldog, their clarion call seems to have no political undertone but based on sheer humanitarian grounds.
