Former spokesperson of the Atiku/Okowa campaign group, Daniel Bwala, has lambasted the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) for embarking on a nationwide strike.

Bwala questioned why the NLC chose to strike on the day students across the country were expected to write examinations.

The former lawmaker said that the NLC was hurting the very families it claimed to be fighting for.

In a post on his X handle on Monday, Bwala alleged that the NLC was pursuing interests other than those of the workers.

He wrote: “@NLCHeadquarters Nigerian Labour Party Congress, you choose to go on strike on the day students across the country are expected to start writing examinations; thereby hurting the very families you claimed to be fighting for, Abi?

“You too well know also how much the federal government will be losing daily when you are on strike; and you expect the government to use blocks and pay your wage demand, Abi?

“Whilst I agree with the need to increase workers’ salaries to match inflation, I, however, condemn any conduct of Labour Party union leaders that will further increase the sufferings of their members and the Nigerian people.

“The day the workers’ eyes open to see whose interests the labour leaders are pursuing, that day workers would sing ‘Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last.'”
