The Trade Union Congress (TUC), has slammed those calling for the sale of national assets to raise money, describing them as enemies of Nigeria.

The union also warned the Federal Government not to sell any asset belonging to the nation, adding that it will face the wrath of the workers if their advice is not taken.

The TUC President, Mr. Bala Kaigama and the Acting Secretary General of the congress, Mr. Simeso Amachree, in a joint statement said “The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria warns those calling for the sale of national shareholdings in Nigeria Liquified Natural Gas Company Ltd and concession of the country’s airports to drop the idea if they do not want to incur the wrath of workers. Those suggestions are disgraceful and portray them as enemies of the state.

“In case those canvassing for the sale have forgotten, it is imperative that they realise that this administration promised to create a minimum of three million jobs yearly. Unfortunately, instead of generating more jobs, no less than four million jobs have been lost in the last one and half years, a development that has led to serious security issues.”

Femi Falana also called on the Federal Government not to sell the nation’s assets.
