Nigerian Labour Congress calls for review of public conduct laws

The Nigerian Labour Congress- NLC has called for the review of the laws guiding the conduct of public officers in the country, stating that the laws of the country, as it is currently composed, supports corruption‎.

President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, who stated this in Abuja, during its National Rally on Good Governance and corruption, added that the Congress is set for a showdown with judges that are frustrating the efforts of the anti-corruption agencies, from prosecuting corrupt individuals through the granting of perpetual injunction of restraints.

According to him, the NLC would no longer fold its hands and allow some members of the judiciary to frustrate the fight against corruption, but would insist that those who misappropriated public funds, are made to return the funds while being made to face the full wrath of the law.

Receiving the protesters, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission- EFCC, Ibrahim Lamorde, assured them of the commission’s readiness to fight corruption and called for the support of Nigerians in the fight.
