The leadership crisis rocking the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is a threat to the development and growth of Nigeria’s economy, the Director-General, Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA), Olusegun Oshinowo has said.
Speaking during an interactive session with Journalists in Lagos, Oshinowo advised the Federal Government to interven in the crisis.
Oshinowo said: “We expect the National Industrial Court (NIC) to continue action on the case and make its pronouncement, which will be binding on everybody”.
He added: The law in taking its position will only be on the side of the legitimate NLC which has the certificate of registration, not the faction that does not have any prima facie or legitimate basis for its operation.
“The law is very clear about this. I expect the NIC to make pronouncement on this based on the position of the law. Since it had given the two parties opportunity to resolve their differences and they have not been able to do that.
“Before the NIC makes it’s ruling, we call on the appropriate institution of government that is expected to keep the peace to prosecute the promoters of illegal NLC. If government fails to act, government will be promoting an environment where nobody will be able to guarantee industrial peace.”
