Workers committed suicide, million lost jobs in 2017 said傍UC

In its own assessment, the TUC said Nigerians were subjected to various dehumanising conditions in 2017, adding that in the midst of the gruelling fuel scarcity, many workers were owed up to six-month salaries while pensions remained unpaid.

The union, in a statement by its President, Bobboi Kaigama, and Secretary-General, Musa-Lawal Ozigi, said, 典he TUC states here unequivocally that Nigerian workers have not only lost their jobs in millions but many  even committed suicide when they could no longer fend for their families.

的t is no news that pensioners (our senior servants), who served this country meritoriously, die on a daily basis, even at verification locations throughout the country.

典hough their pension is not paid yet, they are burdened to feed their graduate children who are yet to get jobs five years after graduation.

典his is not the best of times in our country as Nigerians are subjected to various dehumanising conditions. How do we explain that in the midst of the gruelling fuel scarcity, many workers are still being owed up to six months salaries?

The TUC alleged that some state governors had diverted the bailouts released to them by the Federal Government to enable them to pay workers backlogs of salaries.

It added, 釘ailouts were given but unfortunately diverted by governors and the Federal Government seems not to be doing anything about it. Those governors involved in such irresponsible act should be brought to book. There is no milk of kindness left in our leaders anymore.

擢amilies die on our roads, yet, they tell us our roads are not as bad as some Nigerians claim. It is only in Nigeria people pay for services that they did not use. The power sector is a case in point. If things remain like this, the congress may have no option than to hit the street.

The union said it was worried by the astronomic rate factories closed shop in Nigeria and the billions spent on medical tourism.

It said Nigerians were brought back from Libya lame, blind, abused, adding that Nigerian leaders, who had failed to provide the basic things of life, must be blamed for this.

The TUC stated that the National Minimum Wage Committee, set up by the Federal Government, should conclude everything concerning the new wage on or before the end of the second quarter of 2018.

It said all state governments should pay the outstanding salaries and allowances to workers before the end of the first quarter in 2018.

鄭ll corrupt political officials should face the music, irrespective of their political affiliations. No more soft landing for any body found to have looted the country. 鼎ongress can no longer accommodate this perennial fuel scarcity, especially during the Yuletide or any other time. If it happens, we will direct and mobilise our members all over the country to abandon their cars on major roads, the TUC stated.
