NLC denies ‘Ajaero is working for APC’ allegation



Joe Ajaero President of the United Labour Congress

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has rejected the Labour Party’s leadership’s claim on Tuesday that its President, Joe Ajaero, had a deal with the ruling All Progressives Congress to undermine the Labour Party.

Obiora Ifoh, the LP’s National Publicity Secretary, claimed in a statement that Ajaero directed the NLC to create a crisis within the LP and destabilize it ahead of the 2027 general elections.

Prof. Theophilus Ndubuaku, Deputy President of the NLC Political Commission, responded on Thursday, dismissing the claims that Ajaero was working for the ruling APC.

He said, “How can the NLC President, who was almost killed in Imo State, be working for the APC? Is that not laughable? With what happened to Ajaero in that state, we could have shut down the country if we wanted to. We only decided to be mature about it.

“How can anybody label Ajaero as an APC member? Unless, of course, you don’t know who he is to the Nigerian labour movement.”
