Hon. Peter Akpatason, the member representing Akoko-Edo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, has described the crisis rocking the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), as a setback.
He was of the opinion that the fallout of the crisis would have a negative effect on the fortune of workers.
A former labour leader, Akpatason told newsmen that:
“The crisis currently rocking the
Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, is quite unhealthy. It has affected the unity of the workers and, as we all know, the strength of the labour union is its unity.
“The division in the labour union is not only detrimental to the workers, but to the nation as well. When there is crisis in the labour union, the employers shortchange workers and the multiplier effect is noticeable in the home-front.”
