NLC warns Nigerian govt over plan to remove labour from Exclusive Legislative List

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, on Tuesday, warned the Federal Government to desist from its plan to deregulate labour to states by removing it from the Exclusive Legislative List.

This was contained in a statement by the President of NLC, Ayuba Wabba.

He said that the decision would create intractable chaos for the country as well as judicial nightmares, adding that the government would also flout International Labour Organizations conventions.

The labour leader maintained that such development explained the near uniformity of labour laws across the nations of the world and relative global industrial order, harmony and an attraction for foreign investment.

He explained that the nation-states legislation on labour is driven substantially from the International Labour Organisation conventions, protocols and recommendations and other instruments domesticated through the Acts of parliament.

He said deregulating labour to the states will inevitably create intractable problems, adding that at the membership level, the 36 states of the federation and the FCT are not sovereign which is a basis for ILO membership of Nigeria.

He said a corpus of labour legislation across the 36 states and FCT will almost certainly create a judicial nightmare.

He added that investors will be scared away as they will consider this as an unnecessary addition to the already hostile operating environment, saying that at the level of workers who often act in the national interest, it will whittle down patriotic influence.

In the light of this, we will strongly advocate against removing labour from the Exclusive Legislative List. Not even during the military era was this contemplated,” he said.
