APC Chair:Oshiomhole’s Emergence A Pride Of Textile Union, NLC – Aremu



General Secretary, National Union of Textile Garments and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN), Comrade Issa Aremu has described the emergence of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole  as national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) as a pride to the textile union and Nigeria Labour Congress(NLC).

Oshiohmole was the General Secretary of NUTGTWN for three decades (1982 to 2008)  before he became elected twice as President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) (1999 to 2007) and Edo state Governor.

Addressing journalists in Kaduna barely 48 hours after the APC national convention held and produced Oshiomhole, Aremu said Oshiomhole is the most successful African labour leader.

He noted that the former NLC boss has commendably distinguished himself  as a private sector unionist in the world of work, (where in textile industry and in NLC) he selflessly defended workers.

According to Aremu, “We bear witness that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as an organizer, bargainer, negotiator and statesman is an asset not just to the APC but to the entire country.

“For a party coming out of the stress of primaries, comrade Oshiomhole brings to bear his experiences in social dialogue and compromises in resolving post primary crises. With rich background in the principles of democracy, team work,  persuasion and independence,  he is better positioned to refocus the  mass energy  in APC towards nation building and not dysfunctional politics of office sharing.

“On behalf of the National Executive Council (NEC) of our great union and the generality of our members nationwide we hereby congratulate and salute President Muhammadu Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, all the APC governors and APC delegates for reposing a unique consensus in a globally acknowledged mobiliser, motivator, organizer and a tested patriot as the chairman of the ruling APC”.
