NLC-Issa-aremuFormer Vice President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Issa Aremu, has asked state governors that are unable to pay their workers’ salaries to immediately resign from office.

He added that any governor who could not pay workers their monthly salary as and when due had no moral right to remain in office.

Genocide And Deliberate

Aremu, while speaking with journalists, wondered how and why state governors could not learn from President Muhammadu Buhari, who had been blocking loopholes and fighting corruption.

He described the non-payment of salaries as genocide and deliberate strangulation of the working people through a denial of wage income that had led to the deaths of many workers.
