Ilorin - The Muslim Media Watch has advised the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) not to support acts that could destabilise the country.
The group gave the advice on Wednesday in a statement signed by its Co-ordinator, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, and was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin.
It said the group should not support the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) in its proposed nationwide strike scheduled to commence on Friday.
The statement reminded the NLC of its effort in championing the Jan. 2012 nationwide strike over fuel subsidy 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 be on the side of the masses and "not support a few individuals at the expense of the masses".
It advised NLC to quickly dissociate itself from the proposed Friday nationwide strike by NUPENG.
"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.
