On Wednesday, Labour Party National Chairman Julius Abure urged the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Joe Ajaero, to put aside his differences and work with the party leadership for old times sake.

Abure made the plea during his first press conference since the April 3 fire that nearly killed him at his Abuja residence.

Abure and Ajaero had been at loggerheads following multiple efforts by the congress to take control of the party structure on charges that the distressed LP chairman was operating a one-man show amid allegations of financial mismanagement.

The LP camp had also made a counterclaim that Ajaero was desperately attempting to remove the Abure-led National Working Committee with an ulterior motive to use the party as a transactional faction ahead of the 2027 National Elections

Addressing journalists at the party secretariat in Abuja, Abure described the NLC president as a friend and brother who had toiled with him in the trenches over the years to fight for workers' welfare.

As a result, the LP national chairman invited the union leader to set aside his grievances and join them in rebuilding Nigeria for the benefit of all Nigerians.

“Fighting the Labour Party is uncalled for and unwarranted, especially at this time when the working people of Nigeria are suffering. As we speak today, the minimum wage is still N30,000. There are unfair workers practices by employers across the country. The inflation in Nigeria is unprecedented and nobody talks about workers welfare.'' Abure stated.
