UAE to lift ban on transit flights from Nigeria, others

The Leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress has congratulated President-elect Muhammadu Buhari, noting that by his victory he has become the second person to be re-elected since the country returned to civilian rule twenty years ago.

NLC in a statement by its President, Ayuba Wabba on Wednesday, however, urged other candidates who participated in the election to accept the outcome and adhere to the peace accord they had signed before the election.

He said the electioneering campaign though bitterly fought and the election itself keenly contested, the President-elect and those aggrieved by the outcome should put the interest of the nation first before other considerations.
“We reiterate that no candidate’s victory or loss is worth the life or property of anyone. Mr President won in 2015 on his campaign promise to fight corruption, restore security and grow the economy. From his re-election, this may have bonded well with the greater majority of the people who voted for him.

“Nonetheless, his re-election avails him a great opportunity to reflect on and re-assess this vision, strategy and implementation as well as enable him to complete pending projects and initiate new ones where feasible.
“The Nigeria Labour Congress on its part will work with the social partners, government and organised private sector to ensure Nigerians, especially, workers get dividends of democracy as at when due. Worker-pensioner-issues, especially salaries, pensions and welfare will continue to dominate our engagement with government,” Labour stated.
The apex Labour centre also commended the electoral umpire, INEC for organising the elections irrespective of the initial glitches.

He urged the institution to speedily correct the lapses identified so far in order for it to conduct more credible elections in the future.
He said, “finally, our most profound commendation goes to the millions of Nigerians who defied all odds to perform their civic duty. Similarly, our deep condolences go to the families of those who lost their lives. We demand that the culprits be brought to book in accordance with our laws”.
