The chairman, Progressive Governor’s Forum, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, has appealed to governor Nasir El-Rufai to take all the necessary steps to ensure the resolution of all disagreements with the Nigeria Labour Congress in the larger interest of citizens in Kaduna State.
The chairman and governor of Kebbi State, in a statement, said, “As Progressive Governors, we share the vision of Kaduna State Government of reforming all our Local Governments to make them more efficient and consequently the pivot of critical development initiatives.”
The APC governors appealed to the NLC leadership to recognise that the burden of leadership at this point is more about responding to challenges based on the honest disposition of correcting past mistakes.
The forum noted, “Nigerians are already overstretched with many challenges. At this critical point of our democratic journey, there cannot be limits to engagement between all governments and citizens. Every step must be therefore taken to resolve the current faceoff between Kaduna State Government and NLC. We appeal to both the State Government and NLC to return to the negotiating table.”
The Progressive Governors Forum, PGF, said it has been following events between the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Kaduna State Government over the issue of rightsizing Local Government employees with deep concerns.
The PAC governors said, “Noting all the challenges facing all our states, especially given dwindling revenue, we appeal to all patriotic Nigerians, including the NLC, to demonstrate more commitment toward engaging governments at all levels to address problems. This is not the time for muscle-flexing.”
The governors are confident that both Kaduna State Government and NLC would resolve all outstanding issues and restore industrial harmony in Kaduna State.
