Tinubu’s Aide Blames Labour Party For Ongoing Nationwide Strike

By Alice Etuka, Abuja

The Special Adviser on Information and Strategy to President Bola Tinubu, Bayo Onanuga has said many members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and its affiliate unions enforcing nationwide strike were “supporters of Labour Party,” scheming to blackmail and sabotage President Bola Tinubu’s government.

Mr Onanuga, in a post on his official X handle, @aonanuga1956 condemned the nationwide strike, which disrupted commercial activities nationwide on Monday.

He wrote:

“It’s saddening that Labour could go to this extreme. But it is not surprising to the perceptive minds. Labour is harming the Nigerian people they claim to be fighting for.

“Today, many sick Nigerians could not access medical care at government hospitals. Not even those with critical medical conditions. It appears labour is playing politics by other means. Many of the affiliates of the two central unions, NLC and TUC are members and supporters of the Labour Party. They logically bear ill-will and grudges against the Tinubu administration.

“What is clear is that the issue they claim to be fighting for cannot be resolved by blackmail or sabotage, they cannot even be resolved by the Federal Government unilaterally. The Labour leaders will still have to return to the negotiating table”.
