NLC, TUC did not ask Saraki to resign: Wabba
The factional President of NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba has denied the report credited to the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, that thy 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 told newsmen in Abuja, Sunday, that the NLC backs the fight against corruption, it believes in the rule of law.
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 offense, 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,” he said.
According to him, the labour movement has well defined channels of making public comments on national issues, and that the person who purportedly spoke on behalf of the union is not known to the NLC.
