NLC sues law to criminalize failure to pay pensioners

Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has asked the National Assembly to consider a bill that will prohibit and criminalise owing of pensioners in Nigeria.

This was part of discussions during a familiarisation visit to the headquarters of the National Union of Pensioners in Abuja by leaders of the labour centre.

NLC national president Joseph Ajaero, who led other members of the national executive on the visit, stressed that pensioners who have given their best in the service of this nation must be valued.
