Peter Obi condemns brulalisation of NLC President, Ajaero

Brutalised NLC, President, Mr. Joe Ajaero

 

Labour Party, LP, Presidential candidate in the February 25, poll, Mr. Peter Obi, has condemned the brulalisation of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, President, Mr. Joe Ajaero.

Ajaero was battered in Owerri, in Imo State, when he arrived to mobilise a strike action called by organised labour to protest backlog of salary arrears, non compliance with Minimum Wage Act, among others by the state government.

Obi in a statement, on Thursday, said: “What happened to the President of NLC, Joe Ajaero, in Imo State on Wednesday has come as a rude shock to most Nigerians.

It says a lot about the state of affairs in our country today.

It shows the level of lawlessness, impunity, criminality, and rascality that have engulfed our dear country.

Things like this should worry any discerning mind because it runs counter to the type of country that we all desire and deserve.

In the new Nigeria of our dreams, abuse of power and the reckless violation of citizens’ rights through acts of impunity will have no place,” he added.
