NLC-TUC Leaders

After years of leadership tussle, the Nigeria Labour Congress and the United Labour Congress have buried their hatchets and closed ranks to work together as one.

The ULC broke away in 2015 during the delegates conference to elect new leadership for the NLC.

The President of NLC, Ayuba Wabba, who broke the news to reporters after a joint session meeting on Thursday in Abuja, said the leadership of the ULC has been re-integrated into the NLC.
”That after several disputes the strain between the NLC and UCL has finally been resolved after several negotiations.
“The NLC and UCL will always collaborate to defend the interest of the Nigerian workers,” Wabba said.
The NLC President consequently announced the ULC President Joe Ajaero as the Deputy President of the NLC.
In his reaction, Ajaero said ”We are back to our house, we are back to our family and we are now stronger. Events of the next few days will show that we are back.”
The dissension and disputes between the two sides started after the NLC elections in 2011.
