Some Group in Nigeria urges FG to ignore Wabba faction over Fuel subsidy

A political pressure group, Grassroots Mobilizers for Buhari (GMB) has urged the federal government to ignore the Ayuba Wabba faction of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and never to engage them in any form of dialogue. A statement released by the South-South Media Director of the group, Dr Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe said Nigerians have resolved to put the issue of fuel subsidy behind them as a major step towards the nation’s socioeconomic remodelling.

He further asserted that Ayuba and his corrupt comrades are trying to intimidate the federal government so as to be settled behind closed doors, adding that the rush for strike action when the government was making genuine and frantic efforts to work out additional palliative to cushion the effects of the fuel price increase is suspicious, unreasonable and ill-motivated.

GMB is also alleging that Comrade Ayuba and his co-travellers are being sponsored by the opposition to discredit the APC national government, which makes their so-called struggle a show of shame.


Dr Oghenesivbe asserted that a situation where key affiliate groups of NLC opted out of the strike including the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) goes to show that Ayuba and his group of economic saboteurs are serving their stomachs and not the Nigerian workers.

The group commended the anti corruption war of the federal government and appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the NLC commences the immediate repayment of the N2 billion Naira loan granted to it some years ago; and to investigate any fraud associated with the disbursement and utilization of the loan.

We wish to state without fear or favour that Comrade Ayuba Wabba and his group are enemies of national progress for planning to crumble the nation’s economy at a time our country is going through trying times occasioned by low oil prices and 16 years of misrule by PDP, the statement added.
