Ngige, NLC finally end rift

The rift between the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, may have ended.

An indication of this was a congratulatory letter on Monday to the minister on his reappointment.

The letter was signed by the President of the NLC, Mr. Ayuba Wabba.

Wabba said that Ngige’s reappointment was a testament of the confidence President Muhammadu Buhari reposed in him.

“On behalf of my family and the NLC, I wish to congratulate you on your recent appointment by Mr. President as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“And your subsequent designation as the Minister of Labour and Employment,” he said.

Wabba said it was the NLC’s expectation that the minister would use the opportunity of his reappointment to promote and advance tripartism.

The NLC president also called on the minister to embrace social dialogue, decent work conditions and harmonious industrial relations in Nigeria.

Wabba further wished Ngige a very successful tenure.

NLC had warned Buhari not to return Ngige as the Minister.
