Buhari greets NLC at 40


President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday congratulated the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) on its 40th anniversary.

He joined all Nigerian workers, retirees and pensioners in celebrating the milestone of the vibrant labour union that has lived up to the expectations of its founding fathers by protecting the interest of Nigerian workers through viable engagements with public and private sector employers.

The President, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, affirmed that the NLC has burgeoned into a matured and focused umbrella for all workers in the last four decades by consistently projecting the voice of the workers and negotiating a healthier position for them on the rungs of the Nigerian economy.

At 40, President Buhari extolled present and past leaderships of the NLC for their contributions to the development of the nation, which includes their historical struggle for the return of democratic governance and penchant for always speaking the truth to those in power.

The President re-assured Nigerians that his administration would always work towards an inclusive economy that adequately caters for workers and their families.
