By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba has been declared wanted by the Kaduna State Government.
This was announced by the state Governor, Nasir Elrufai, via his verified Twitter handle @elrufai on Tuesday morning, in which he accused the NLC president and other labour leaders of being economic saboteurs who were attacking public infrastructure in Kaduna State, actions that were unlawful under the Miscellaneous Offences Act.
El-Rufai called on anyone with information about the whereabouts of the NLC President and his fellow comrades to contact the Kaduna State Ministry of Justice with the promise of a juicy reward.

This came in the wake of a demonstration strike on Monday by the workers in the state led by Wabba in response to the recent disengagement of over seven thousand civil servants at the state and local governments by the state government, with the protest resulting in a power outage, shut down of the airport, and fuel queues in various parts of the state. The Kaduna State government had condemned the Monday protest.
Other affiliate unions including the National Union of Petroleum Employees of Nigeria (NUPENG), National Union of Electricity Employees of Nigeria (NUEE), National Union Of Textile, Tailoring and Garment Workers of Nigeria also joined the protest.
