0 113

Nigeria Labour Congress [NLC] has rejected the plan by former National chairman of the Labour Party, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam to adopt Olusegun Mimiko as the party’s Presidential flag-bearer for the 2019 general elections.

NLC President, Mr. Ayuba Wabba and Mrs Ebere Ifendu, the National Publicity Secretary, Labour Party, stated this at a joint news conference on Thursday in Abuja.

According to Wabba, it is very important for labour to make its position clear for the 2019 General Elections.

“It is not possible for Mimiko to run under the labour party and we want to say no to that.

“Mimiko has no business as a member of the Labour Party.

“The party is registered by the NLC and the Trade Union Congress, Market Women Association, students, we register the party and the certificate of the party is with the NLC General Secretary.

“Therefore, bringing money to buy the party or the structure will not work.

“We do not share in the same ideology with him. It is a party with a difference,” the statement read.

Mimiko had, in a series of tweets on Thursday, declared his intention to run for the 2019 presidential election on the platform of Labour Party.

Among other things, he pledged to fight the dismal performance of the economy within the wider context of quality leadership, corruption, killings, insecurity, among others.
