Muslim Media Watch says the union should not support a strike that might destabilise the nation

The Muslim Media Watch has advised the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to withdraw from the proposed National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG) nationwide strike scheduled to commence on Friday.

This was made known in a statement signed by the group’s Co-ordinator, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, on Wednesday, in Ilorin.

The statement reminded the NLC of its effort in spearheading the fuel subsidy nationwide strike which exposed malpractices.

“It will now be uncalled for for the NLC to back the proposed NUPENG strike under the pretence of supporting their members working in the oil industry,” the Muslim Media Watch said.

The group advised the NLC to continue to support the masses and “not a few individuals at the expense of the masses”.

“The NLC and other industrial unions should join hands with the federal government to track down those who collected subsidy payment fraudulently and ensure that they return the monies collected,” the statement said.
