Ajaero Emerges New NLC National President
The Nigeria Labour Congress, on Wednesday, elected Joe Ajaero as its national president.
Ajaero, who until his emergence as president was the deputy national president of the labour union, made history by emerging unopposed as the union’s president.
Ajaero, who until his emergence was also the general secretary of the Nigerian Union of Electricity Employees, emerged as the NLC national president at the 13th National Delegates’ Conference of the labour union ongoing in Abuja.
The conference, which began on Tuesday, February 7, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, and is expected to end on Wednesday with the election of new national officers for a four-year period, a report by The Niche NG says.
One of the delegates, Prince Emeka Kalu, National Vice President (South-East), Radio, Television, Theatre and Arts Workers’ Union of Nigeria (RATTAWU), who spoke to News Express, said, “History is already being made here. This is the first time a President of the Nigeria Labour Congress will be elected as a consensus candidate.”
Ajaero succeeds Ayuba Wabba, whose tenure as NLC national president ends Wednesday.
