The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has asked the federal government to withdraw the state pardon granted to former Bayelsa State governor Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.
The Congress said if the anti corruption battle must be won, the Presidency must lead by its actions, stressing that it wonders what message the National Council of state is sending to Nigerians if at the height of unprecedented corruption in the country those who have been prosecuted and jailed for stealing public money are granted state pardon.
"State pardon is recognized across the world not for its own sake but for its potential and capacity for redressing judicial guilt, rewarding penitence” he said.
I hope they are not planning a strike because I wont be a party to it. At the end of the day we know who really suffers, so count me out.
