Strike: NLC Nothing More Than Ravenous Wolves — Fani-Kayode

Strike: NLC Nothing More Than Ravenous Wolves — Fani-Kayod

The former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has compared the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to a pack of ravenous wolves over their planned strike due to the fuel subsidy removal.

Speaking via a statement on his Twitter page on Monday, the APC Chieftain did not hold back as he slammed the union for not opting for industrial action when CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele introduced the naira redesign policy.

According to Fani-Kayode, the fuel subsidy removal is an implementation of a "well-thought-out and credible policy" which was endorsed by citizens who chose a President who promised to remove it.

The former minister also alleged that NLC is being controlled by Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, adding that whether or not they liked it, the subsidy will go.

"The leadership of the NLC did not threaten to go on strike when the sadistic monster called Emefiele introduced his horrendous, callous, wicked, malevolent, barbaric, vicious, self-seeking, politically-motivated, unconstitutional and illegal cash confiscation and money deprivation policy that resulted in the suffering, hunger, destruction, death, suicide, hardship, depression, frustration, madness and despair of millions of our people.

"Instead they are threatening to go on strike over the implementation of a well-thought-out and credible policy on oil subsidy which the Nigerian people endorsed by voting for a President who promised to remove it and which, though initially tough, will inevitably and eventually result in the restoration and resurrection of our economy and ensure that we have the necessary funds and resources for massive infrastructural development.

"Is this not strange and is it not a reflection of the insincerity, double standards and hypocrisy of the leadership of the Labour Congress?

"Does it not prove the fact they are acting out a script and that they are nothing more than a pack of ravenous wolves, implacable adversaries, insidious subversives and opportunistic mercenaries who are in the hands and power of Peter Obi?

"If Peter orders them to jump they will ask, "Bwana, how high?"

"Yet the truth is that whether the NLC likes it or not the oil subsidy MUST and WILL go.

"That is the only way to save our country from the fiscal challenges, rot and deterioration that it has suffered over the last 15 years and put us back on the right track for national development", the post reads.
