The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Niger State chapter, says the Nigerian government’s feeding programme is “total corruption” geared toward wastage.
Comrade Yahaya Ndako Idris, Chairman of the Niger State chapter of the NLC, said this in his remarks at a ‘Solemn Assembly’ unionized by the Niger state wing of the Nigerian Union of lecturers (NUT) on Monday.
According to the Nation newspaper, Idris said the funds allotted for the college feeding programme ought to be channeled to alternative academic programmes like the renovation of faculties, to profit the young generation.
Commending the NUT for organising the ‘Solemn Assembly’, Idris said it’s vital for everything to be place within the hands of God as God is the only one who can settle the challenges facing the state.
Comrade Ibrahim Umar, state Chairman of the NUT, appreciated lecturers within the state for his or her dedication to duty.
At the event, prayers were offered for the sleek conduct of the elections and for God to “touch the hearts of the leadership” to try and do the bidding of employees, particularly lecturers.
Prayers were also offered towards the passing of the 30,000 minimum wage bill by the National Assembly.
