The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) says it is appalled by the political developments in the Kogi State House of Assembly “where the speaker, Honourable Alfa Imam was forced out and a more compliant one installed.”
A statement issued by the NLC President Ayuba Wabba at the weekend stated that “the offence of the former Speaker was that he had initiated a legislative process to look into the disbursements of the Paris Club refund following non-payment of salaries and pensions and the industrial tensions in its aftermath.”
“But the former Speaker was lucky to have gotten off “lightly” as the House Member who moved the motion for this process ended up in Plaster of Paris (POP) courtesy of the thugs dispatched to disrupt the House proceedings,” he added.
Wabba noted that the Kogi State mess represents the height of
and should be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians even as he called on the Federal Government to salvage the situation before it spins out of control.
