Organised Labour has warned government against further actions that would put more burdens on the workers. President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, in his Christmas message said the year has been turbulent for workers hence government must steer away from making workers’ burden more grievous.
“This will be resisted. Workers cannot be the cannon fodder for the misgovernance of successive years,” he said.
He noted that the news of the availability of a vaccine for COVID-19 is a special gift of Christmas.
“As medical experts confirm the potency and safety of the vaccine, we urge the international health community to develop a pro-poor vaccine that will not dig further holes in the pockets of poor countries and poor people of the world,” he said. (Sun)
