Divine Udoma 15 May 2014, Sweetcrude, Port Harcourt – The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) says it would be shutting down labour activities in Rivers States if those who attacked its members during the election of the Petroleum and National Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) in Indorama Eleme-Petrochemicals were not brought to book.
Mr. Onuegbu, who is also the Chairman of Trade Union Congress in Rivers State accused the King of Eleme Kingdom, Chief Oluka Ejire of supporting illegalities by trying to impose officials on the labour union for his own selfish interest.
country would take advantage to start listing positions in any labour elections
and when that happens it automatically means that the Trade Union movement in Nigeria is dead. Remember every organization is situated in a community so those
communities will always want to make reference to what happened in Eleme petrochemicals and if we don’t agree, it will cause mayhem” he stressed.
