Junior Taamas
, Nigeria.
The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has
commenced a nationwide protest over the
leadership tussle at the Nigeria Social
Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) board.

The nationwide protest, which kicked off 9 am
on Monday, May 13 at the Labour house in the
Nigerian capital, Abuja with members of
affiliated unions in attendance, Premium Times
reports.

The union is protesting over the minister of
labour, Dr Chris Ngige’s unwillingness to
inaugurate the NSITF board.

Speaking at the protest, the national president
of NLC, Ayuba Wabba, said they are protesting
the attack on Nigerian workers during a
procession to Ngige’s private residence in
Asokoro, Abuja.

“Members of International Labour Congress in
Geneva will be protesting against Ngige on June
18,” he said.

The NLC had earlier called on President
Muhammadu Buhari to probe Ngige over his
involvement in the affairs of the NSITF.
Wabba had also said the protest is not against
the inauguration of the board but against the
manner in which the minister superintended
the affairs of the labour sector.

On Wednesday, last week, NLC members had
staged a protest on the street where Ngige’s
house is located, using two petrol tankers to
barricade his residence.
