The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says it was mobilising workers for public advocacy today at the National Assembly on the autonomy for local governments, legislature and judiciary.

NLC President, Ayubba Wabba, said this in a letter addressed to media organisations Sunday.

“As a follow up to the process of Constitution Amendment before the National Assembly, especially on autonomy for local governments, judiciary and the legislature, the NLC wishes to inform you that Organised Labour is mobilising Nigerian workers for advocacy at the National Assembly on the Feb. 28.

“Our mobilisation is to enable workers make their voices heard on this very important legislation.

“This, we believe, holds the key to the strengthening of our democracy, boosting our economy and improving the lots of Nigerian workers at the grassroots, the Judiciary and the Legislative arms of our government.

“Our show of support for ongoing legislative initiatives for constitution amendments, especially with regards to strengthening the autonomy for local governments, state legislatures and the judiciary is against the background of efforts to misinterpret the recent Supreme Court judgement on Executive Order 10.

“We know that the judgement of the Supreme Court did not impeach the Constitutional provisions prescribing and protecting the autonomy of local governments, state legislature and the judiciary,” he said. (NAN)
