Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has said that he had no reason to have supported the attack on the President of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Joe Ajaero, during protest in the state.
The governor stated this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday night, which was monitored by our correspondent.
Uzodimma said, “I think Joe Ajaero is pursuing his interest. He has said times without number that he is a member of the Labour Party. He has a candidate in the election of Imo State, so he is driving whatever programme will give an advantage to the Labour Party in Imo State.
“If you follow with interest the history of the Labour Congress from 1999 till date, never in the history of any government has the Labour Congress or Labour union, shown the level of hostility they have shown to this administration.
As I speak to you, we have not met, we have never discussed, he has never presented anything to me. I am not a member of the Labour Union. I have no reason to encourage or support an assault on Joe Ajaero, who is the President of the Nigerian Labour Congress.”
