The Nigerian Labour Congress, (NLC), has denied throwing its weight behind the Grand National Coalition ahead of the 2019 general elections in the country.
The NLC President , Ayuba Wabba, described as false and misleading, claims by the Deputy Director General of the new political movement, Naseer Kura which suggests he or the NLC has endorsed the Grand National Coalition (GNC) of the National Intervention Movement for 2019.
Wabba, in his reaction, said he was not part of the group that endorsed the grand national political coalition for 2019.
“I would want to state clearly that neither Ayuba Wabba, the Nigeria Labour Congress nor the Labour Party was part of or affiliated to the National Intervention Movement.
“There is a clear procedure for affiliating, endorsing or consorting with any social or political group outside the Nigeria Labour Congress.
“To the best of my knowledge, the issue of affiliating, endorsing or consorting with NIM was not debated in any of our organ meetings or the Labour Party.
“I wish to state categorically that I have not been attending the meetings of NIM, neither was I at the said meeting from which the communique in question emanated,” he said.
