Kebbi NLC chairman sacked

27 July 2016, 12:07

Kebbi - he Executive Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kebbi state chapter, has removed its chairman, Comrade Murtala Usman.

His removal was announced at a meeting held by the leadership of the congress at its secretariat in Birnin Kebbi on Tuesday, July 26, Daily Trust reports.

The NLC picked Comrade Umar Halidu Alhassan as his replacement.

The congress’s vice chairman, Comrade Sabitu Lawal said the NLC decided to replace the former chairman with Comrade Umar Halidu Alhassan following the former chairman’s dismissal by his employer, the Kaduna Electric Distribution Company (KEDCO) in July last year.

In his reaction, the Chairman of the National Union of Teachers in Kebbi State, Sanusi Umar, dismissed the action of the leadership of the state congress, insisting that the ‘impeached’ chairman remained the leader of NLC in the state.
