Minister congratulates Wabba, new NLC leader

The Supervising Minister of Labour and Productivity, Kabi­ru Tanimu Turaki, has described the emergence of Comrade Aliyu Wabba, the new President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), as a step to further unite and build the Nigerian workforce, through social dialogue.

The Minister urged the Wabba administration to toe the line of established paradigm shift in government/Labour relations to a dialogue-based approach in re­solving labour impasse.

Turaki added that the admin­istration of President Goodluck Jonathan is pro-workers as dem­onstrated by its worker-friendly disposition and policies. He solic­ited the continuous support of the organised labour union for the Transformation Agenda which was aimed at job creation and national infrastructural develop­ment.

He stated that “Comrade Aliyu Wabba is a man I consider as a pragmatic leader in national de­velopment. I wish him success in his new position as the NLC presi­dent”. Turaki affirmed.
