JUST IN: NLC Gets New President

On Wednesday, Joe Ajaero was elected national president of the Nigeria Labour Congress.

Ajaero, who previously served as the labor union’s deputy national president before being elected president, made history by winning the election with no opposition.

Ajaero, who previously served as general secretary of the Nigerian Union of Electricity Employees, was elected national president of the NLC at the labor organization’s 13th National Delegates’ Conference, which is currently taking place in Abuja.

According to The Niche NG, the conference, which began on Tuesday, February 7, at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, is expected to end on Wednesday with the election of new national officers for a four-year term.

One of the delegates, Prince Emeka Kalu, National Vice President (South-East), Radio, Television, Theatre and Arts Workers’ Union of Nigeria (RATTAWU), who spoke to News Express, said, “History is already being made here. This is the first time a President of the Nigeria Labour Congress will be elected as a consensus candidate.”

Ajaero succeeds Ayuba Wabba, whose tenure as NLC national president ends Wednesday.

Born on December 17, 1964, in Emekuku Owerri-North, Imo State, Ajaero has been the NLC deputy president since 2011. He has been the general secretary of the NUEE since 2005. He was Research Officer One Mechanised Infantry Division Nigerian Army Kaduna between 1990 and 1991 (NYSC); Reporter/Correspondent and Assistant News Editor at Vanguard Newspapers 1992 – 2001; and Head of Training/Information, NUEE 2001 – 2005.
