The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on workers to vote out politicians who are ‘anti-workers’, during the 2015 general elections.

The NLC President, Abdulwaheed Omar, made the call in his New Year message to the workers.

According to him, in a bid ro ensure industrial peace in the country, politicians who were insensitive to the welfare of workers should be rejected.

“We call on workers to massively reject these anti-workers politicians in the 2015 elections.

“We direct our councils in the affected states to serve appropriate ultimatums on their government to pay the arrears of salaries or face disruption of services,’’ he said.

Omar disclosed that 11 state governments and some federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) were owing workers salaries. Osun, Benue, Plateau, among others, owed their workers salary arrears ranging from three to eight months.

He however called for fair, transparent and credible elections. “Nigeria is bigger than any partisan interests and its sovereignty and inviolability are sacrosanct,” the NLC president said.

Omar urged workers to turn out to exercise their franchises and defend their votes during the elections.

He urged the government to tackle unemployment, reduce crime rate and address the problem of power supply in the New Year.
