FG Urges Organised Labour To Abandon Planned Protest Against Corruption

The Federal Government has described the planned protest by the Trade Union Congress, TUC over the high profile cases of corruption in some government agencies and the inaction of President Muhammadu Buhari as ill-advised and uncalled for.

A statement from the office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Monday, asked the labour body to give room for the investigation by both the executive and National Assembly to run its full course.

The statement reads, “The reported plan by the Trade Union Congress to embark on a nationwide protest over the alleged President Muhammadu Buhari’s inaction over the high-level of corruption uncovered at the Niger Delta Development Commission, the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is ill advised and totally uncalled for considering that there are ongoing investigations in the cases by both the executive and legislative arms of government. These processes must be allowed to run their full courses.

“It is against the norm in a democratic society as well as the natural laws of justice to seek “action,” meaning punishment, against offenders before the proper investigation, trial and conviction.

“The President has made it clear that the allegations that have surfaced clearly constitute a breach of trust and as the investigations take hold and closeout, all those found wanting will face the wrath of the law.

“The TUC, as an enlightened group of labour Unionists, should indeed voice their indignation whenever such acts are being unearthed.”

Recall the organised labour earlier frowned at the massive corruption going on in the country and threatened to mobilise its members to stage a nationwide protest.
