BREAKING: Akume accuses labour leaders of treasonable felony

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, has accused labour leaders of committing treasonable felony.

Recall that members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) had shut down the national grid during its nationwide strike on Monday, June 3.

Addressing the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Abuja on Thursday, Akume said national grid is a national security infrastructure.

The SGF noted that shutting down the national grid is a security breach on the part of Labour.

He urged members of the Organised Labour to be more circumspect in their demands over national minimum wage and the restoration of old electricity tariff.

The SGF reaffirmed the commitment of President Bola Tinubu to improve the welfare of Nigerians.

He, however, lamented the loss of revenue by the Federal Government due to the action of the Organised Labour.

Similarly, the Senate has expressed concerns over the implications of the shutdown of the National Grid and disruption of hajj flights, among other actions taken by the Organised Labour during the nationwide strike for a new minimum wage.
