Governor Nasir El-Rufai of kaduna state on Wednesday expressed dissatisfaction to other governors over his administration’s face-off with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
El-Rufai made the accusation during a virtual meeting of the Nigeria Governor’s Forum. The governor accused his colleagues of abandoning his administration.
As part of the meeting, a committee set up by the NGF recommended a petrol price of between N408.5 per litre and N380 per litre. It called for immediate removal of fuel subsidy.
Before the committee submitted its report, El-Rufai had berated the forum.
He also accused an unnamed governor of providing mobilisation funds for the NLC to destabilise Kaduna State.
Workers in the state workers had on Monday begun a five-day strike over El-Rufai administration’s retrenchment of 45,000 workers and the alleged anti-labour policies.
There was confusion in the state on Tuesday as thugs attacked workers at a rally organised by the NLC prompting the congress to issue a statement, where it threatened to declare a nationwide strike.
El-Rufai had earlier on Tuesday declared the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, wanted for allegedly sabotaging the economy of the state.
Baring his mind at the NGF meeting on Wednesday, El-Rufai said he did not get the required support from his colleagues.
