May Day Symposium holds in Abuja

Workers Day Symposium 2012

(NLC President Comrade Abdulwahed Ibrahim Omar at the Pre-May Day Symposium)

The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Abdulwahed Ibrahim Omar, bemoaned the bad security situation in the country. To tackle this issue, he recommended that the government should increase the fight against the social causes of crime and terrorism like unemployment, missing food security and a bad education system.

Omar’s demand was part of this year’s Pre-May Day Symposium with the topic: “Right to Work, Food & Education: Panacea to Insecurity” organized by the NLC/TUC. High-ranking comrades and professors presented papers to relating issues.

In one of the contributions, Trade Union Congress (TUC) President-General Peter Esele suggested the establishment of a strong Labour Party to strengthen the influence of trade unions in the country. He was supported by Ali Chiroma and the comrades in the fully occupied auditorium in Abuja’s Labour House.

The tone is set for the May Day Rally 2012 at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
