EL-rufai declares NLC President, others, wanted

By our reporter| The Kaduna State government on Tuesday declared the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba wanted.

The state Governor, Nasir Elrufai who made the declaration on his verified Twitter handle @elrufai on Tuesday morning, said the NLC president and others labour leaders are declared wanted for economic sabotage and attacks on public infrastructure in Kaduna State under the Miscellaneous Offences Act.

Wabba had earlier on Monday led workers in the state on a warning strike following the recent disengagement of over seven thousand civil servants at the state and local governments by the state government.

The protest resulted in a power outage, shut down of the airport, and fuel queues in various parts of the state as aviation workers shut down operations of Kaduna International Airport (KIA) in solidarity.
