Nigerians disappointed in NLC over purported N2billion FG Loan

Nigerians have taken to social media to lambaste the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) over accusations it received N2 billion ‘loan’ from the Federal Government during the 2012 protest against subsidy removal.

The factional president of the union, Comrade Joe Ajaero had accused the Ayuba Wabba faction of asking the government to write off the N2 billion loan the group collected in 2012 to buy buses.

He said, “When you are asking that the loan given to you in 2012, which had not been paid back should be written off, we believe that the action has already been sold out before it takes off.”

Critics of the ongoing lukewarm strike action have stressed that the union leaders lost a huge chunk of their credibility with revelations that they collected such amount from the federal government at a time when majority of Nigerians supported and trusted them for good representation.
