ULC urges workers to be involved in 2019 election

The United Labour Congress has urged Nigerian workers to collect their Permanent Voter Card and be fully involved in 2019 general election in order to chase out any anti-labour government.

The Chairman, Lagos Chapter of the union, Alhaji Tokunbo Korodo, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

According to the chairman, such votes can go a long way to change any government that is not workers friendly, if only workers have their Permanent Voter Cards.

“We cannot imagine a situation in which political class are smiling home with cash while workers are languishing in poverty.

“A situation whereby some state governments cannot pay the minimum wage of N18,000 salaries of their workers while the Federal Government is planning to increase the workers’ salaries is very sad.

“Some state governments are even owing their workers salary while they are living like kings; this is pathetic,” he said.

Korodo said there was nothing to showcase for the May Day Celebration coming on May 1.
