On behalf of the National Executive Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress and indeed all Nigerian workers, we thank and commend Mr. President for the reappointment of Mr. Boss Mustapha and Mallam Abba Kyari as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chief of Staff to the President respectively.
Over the past four years, we have had very good working relationships with Alhaji Kyari and Mr. Mustapha which contributed immensely in fast tracking resolutions of critical labour issues in the country and we have no doubt that the country has benefitted and will benefit more from their commitment to the success of the present government and the progress of the entire country.
We recall, in particular, Mr. Kyari’s interventions at critical moments during the negotiations of the new National Minimum wage, which dispelled various misinformation sent to the President by some individuals involved in the negotiations. He has always been receptive to our concerns and open for meetings even during weekends, despite his crowded schedules with his office full of guests who are definitely not business people seeking contracts but patriots who mean well for our country.
We urge Mr. President to maintain the trust and patriotic purpose of the presence of Alhaji Kyari and Boss Mustapha in his administration.
Comrade Ayuba Wabba, mni
