Senator says Elrufai's policies are anti-people

The senator Representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Comrade Shehu Sani has said that policies of the State Governor, Malam Nasir Elrufai are anti-people.

Shehu Sani who said this on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 while receiving a delegation of labour union in the state who paid him a courtesy visit said there is no doubt the economy is facing challenges but added that governors must prioritize workers’ salaries instead of embarking on white elephant projects. “As you plan your mass rally, I stand by you. Any government that is against the issue of unionism, that government is anti-people. Workers are the backbone of every society and of every revolutionary change. Anybody that is standing for the division of workers union is moving towards the persecution of workers. And any worker who rejects his union identity card is making himself vulnerable to persecution, retrenchment and is under the mercy of the whims and caprices of those in power,” Shehu Sani said.

“Nigerian workers are the most important segment of Nigerian society. The Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees, the NLC, TUC, NUT must come together and defend the interest of its members, that is why I support your planned action.”“Any law, any Act and decree that subverts the fundamental rights and interest of Nigerian workers, disobey that law,” Sani said.
