The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said the current economic challenges facing the country has caused untold hardship to workers across the country

NLC president, Comrade Ayuba Wabba blamed what he described as “recklessness” of the political class for the current economic challenges.

Speaking during a familiarization visit to the Nigerian Union of Public Service Reportorial Secretarial, Data Processors and Allied Workers (NUPSRAW), he said it is obviously not the best of times for workers, citing cases of unpaid salaries and pension.

He accused political class of relegating the welfare of the workers and the people to the background, stressing that politicians see running for office as an investment.

He said, “They go into politics as business. And they try to recoup the investment and make profit. The welfare of the people has been relegated. The primary aim of government is the welfare of the people. But this welfare has been relegated.”

He said that rising rate of unemployment has led to severe hardship, forcing youths to engage in one form of criminality or the other.
