Labour Blames El-Rufai for Insecurity in Abuja, Kaduna, Kogi, Niger
The security challenges facing Kaduna and the neighboring states of Niger, Kogi and FCT are caused by some actions of the governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai.
The general secretary, Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees (AUPCTRE), Comrade Sikiru Waheed, said this during the Workers’ Day celebration in Abuja.
He said: “AUPCTRE is using this May Day 2021 occasion to reassure workers and its leadership as ably represented by Comrade Ayuba Wabba that we wholeheartedly support all Central Administrative Council, Central Working Committee, and NEC decisions of the NLC on burning and unpalatable industrial dispute created by His Excellency Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State on the retrenchment of 5, 000 workers last month, totalling about 30, 000 workforce since 2015 to date.
“This has no doubt contributed to the case of insecurity in Kaduna State and its neighbouring states of Niger, FCT and Kogi.”
The National Executive Council of the NLC has threatened to shut down Kaduna and economic activities following the recent decision of the government to sack 5, 000 workers.
