A Senator from Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, has condemned the recent assault on Joe Ajaero, the national president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
Mr Oshiomhole, who represents Edo North District in Nigerian Senate, according to the RoyalTimes spoke on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa Abuja when he and other members of the APC visited to congratulate President Bola Tinubu on the victories of the party in the just concluded off-cycle governorship elections in Kogi, Bayelsa and Imo States.
Mr Oshiomhole said he does not support brutalisation of any Nigerian, including the labour leader.
“Let me be clear. I do not support the brutalisation of any Nigerian. I emphasise, any Nigerian, including a journalist, including the unemployed. Of course, including labour leader,” he said.
The senator, however, suggested that the NLC was wrong in their demands explaining that the labour union should have focused on confronting state governments to implement thirty thousand naira minimum wage.
