Nigeria Labour Congress denies allegations of pact with APC

NLC Reacts to Accusations from Labour Party Leadership Regarding President Joe Ajaero

Must read

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has strongly refuted claims made by the leadership of the Labour Party (LP) accusing its President, Joe Ajaero, of colluding with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to destabilize the LP ahead of the 2027 general elections.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the National Publicity Secretary of the LP, Obiora Ifoh, alleged that Ajaero had directed the NLC to orchestrate a crisis within the LP, aiming to undermine its stability.

Responding to these allegations on Thursday, Prof. Theophilus Ndubuaku, the Deputy President of the NLC Political Commission, vehemently rejected the notion that Ajaero was aligned with the APC.

“How can the NLC President, who narrowly escaped harm in Imo State, be accused of collaborating with the APC? It’s quite absurd,” Ndubuaku stated. “Given the precarious situation Ajaero faced in that state, we could have mobilized nationwide protests if we had wanted to. However, we chose to handle the situation with maturity.”

He went on to question the credibility of labeling Ajaero as an APC member, emphasizing Ajaero’s significant contributions to the Nigerian labour movement.

Ndubuaku’s remarks underscored the NLC’s firm stance against the accusations levelled by the LP leadership, portraying them as baseless and unfounded. The NLC’s rebuttal aimed to dispel any insinuations of collusion with the ruling party, emphasizing the organization’s commitment to upholding the interests of Nigerian workers.

In light of these developments, the controversy surrounding Ajaero’s alleged involvement with the APC highlights the intricacies of political dynamics within Nigeria’s labor movement, underscoring the importance of transparency and accountability in inter-party relations.
