Nigeria: PDP Calls For Overthrow Of NLC, TUC Leadership

The Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State has called for the overthrow of the current leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).

The PDP described NLC and TUC leadership as ‘’corrupt, insensitive, rebellious, partisan and must be overthrown’’.

State Publicity Secretary Matthew Urhoghide was reacting to the rally organised by NLC and TUC in solidarity with Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

He said the current leadership of NLC and TUC ‘’must be replaced by one that has enough dignity and honesty.’’

Urhoghide said the NLC and TUC lacked the legal rights to impose a governorship candidate on Edo State workers.

He added that it was surprising that the state governor refused to obey an order of the National Industrial Court which issued an exparte order to stop the mass rally.

He said, “This state came into a halt. Workers did not go to work. It is rude and callous. It is wrong.”

But Governor Oshiomhole said the PDP acted cowardly by using the CPC as front in getting what he called frivolous injunctions.

Oshiomhole, who spoke to reporters yesterday, said the law regarding personal income tax has been passed.

According to him, “Some of these guys are cowards. Rather than come out and stand on their feet, they seek politicians of no consequence to fight cases for them while they pretend not to be interested.

‘’ It shows that they were cowards. They know that what they were doing was wrong.”

    Hahaha….so PDP too can cry wolf….that’s refreshing!
    Isn’t it hypocritical for a political party that thrives on corruption and illegality to accuse others of same? ACN must have mastered “PDP 101” better than PDP themselves…lol
