Extend Probe to Power Sector – NLC Tells Buhari

buhari-nn-1024x702

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) yesterday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately begin probe of the power sector.

NLC President, Ayuba Wabba in a chat with newsmen yesterday said that the privatization of the power sector was done secretly, adding that with over $40 billion dollars spent in the sector, the country was still in darkness.

Re-echoing support for the ongoing war against corruption, Wabba assured that the NLC would work with civil society organisations to present a bill to the National Assembly to bring to effect its call for capital punishment for corruption.

“The revelations by former National Security Adviser and his erstwhile Director of Finance, which we believe are just a tip of the iceberg are mind boggling and justify as well as reinforce our call for capital punishment in cases of corruption in public office”, he stated.

Wabba urged Buhari not to relent in his war against corruption, adding that the NLC will not allow any attempt to politicise the anti corruption efforts of the government.

He, however, urged anti-corruption agencies to follow due process in the course of their duties.
