Statement Asking for Saraki’s Resignation is not from NLC – Ayuba Wabba

by on September 28, 2015

President of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba has denied a report that the group asked the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who is facing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal over alleged false asset declaration, to resign.

Wabba, speaking with newsmen in Abuja, Sunday, revealed that the NLC, though fighting corruption, believed in the rule of law and due process.

He said: “The NLC believes in the rule of law and we believe that whatever is right should be done. By our laws, the mere allegation that somebody has committed an offence, we don’t judge the person as guilty until it is pronounced by a court of law.

“To me that would be following due process and the rule of law than to midway begin to make pronouncement and criminalize people. I think what is right should be done rightly.

“I think those statements cannot be credited to us. You can consult the people that have issued those statements but certainly they are not from us. We believe in due process, we believe in the rule of law.

“We are championing the war against corruption, we also believe that we should follow due process in whatever we want to do. People should not be stampeded into making pronouncements on behalf of the NLC.”

Wabba added that the NLC had defined channels of making public comments on national issues, insisting that the person who purportedly spoke on its behalf was not known to the union.

    Thank God that it seem we are going to have an alternative to ‘liar SaharaReporters’ keep it up.
    Our governor is only exhibiting his frustration and failure on the innocents. Just imagine,, more than 3months into his new term, weren’t seeing nothing concrete except ‘sacking and arresting’. We demand accelerated development in road infrastructure, education,health etc. Meanwhile, I hope ‘home ownership scheme has not become a big fraud.
    The world is watching o and remember, going to the Senate after now may not come easy with this kind of attitude o. We’re waiting.
