Nigeria Labour Congress Makes Fresh Demand Ahead Of Polls

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said that as a result of the shift in the date of the general elections, the federal government should declare a two or three-day public holiday to enable workers travel to perform their civic duty.

The NLC also urged Nigerians especially workers not to be discouraged with the postponement, but to go all out and cast their vote, saying the postponement of the election was a better evil than disenfranchising several millions of Nigerians.

A statement by the President of the Congress, Comrade Ayuba Wabba said that from the evidence available, many people would not have been able to cast their vote as a result of logistics problems if the election had been allowed to go ahead.

“We call on institutions to be flexible with their staff to enable them travel in good time to perform this important civic duty even if it means government declaring a day or two public holiday to achieve this.

“As for INEC, we do hope they have learnt their lesson. On no account ever again, should they allow this to happen. All effort and expertise must be deployed by INEC to guarantee free, fair and credible elections. We appeal to all Nigerians to put this incident behind them and go out en mass to vote next weekend.”
