We’ll disown Peter Obi if he adopts IMF, World Bank policies as president — NLC President, Ajaero



The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Joe Ajaero, has said that the labour union would disown the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, if he adopted the policies of the International Monetary Fund, IMF, and the World Bank if elected Nigeria’s President.

Ajaero made this statement on Tuesday while speaking in an interview with Channels Television.

Ajaero, who described the position of the NLC on the removal of petrol subsidy and electricity subsidy as ‘fixated,’ also added that the labour union would have it tough with any Labour Party president who implements the policies of the IMF.

The NLC President said, “He (Obi) is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, but does he own the NLC or the Labour Party? Why can’t you separate them?

“Whoever is the presidential candidate or official of the Labour Party must buy into our projects. If he says he was going to undertake those policies, let him be elected and try such policies.

“Whether a presidential candidate of a party that Labour forms would dictate for Labour? The answer is known to everybody. The policies of Labour, the ideologies of Labour are clear and we are going to pursue it.”
