President Muhammadu Buhari has rejoiced with President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Philibus Wabba, on his election as President of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the largest trade union federation in the world.
The President in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, joined members of the NLC and all Nigerian workers in celebrating the election, which further signals the great work the union had been doing in ensuring the welfare of workers.
“As the first African to head the ITUC, President Buhari believes the labour leader will bring his wealth of experience in persuasion and negotiation to the new position, assuring him of the Federal Government’s support.
“The President wishes the NLC President a successful tenure,” the statement read in part.
