Labour Demands Dignity For Workers, Call For Capacity Building

By Lola Seriki- Idahosa

Organized labour has decried what it described as “gross violation of workers’ dignity” through dramatized “competence test” for workers and teachers particularly in the public schools.

A NEC Member of NLC Comrade Issa Aremu delivering a key note address at the 2017 National conference of the Committee for the Defence of Human rights (CDHR) in Kaduna at the weekend, called on state governors to “dignify their respective workforce through capacity building, understanding and sympathy as demanded by the principles of Decent Work by International Labour Organization (ILO)”. Comrade Aremu who is also the Vice President of Industriall global union and General Secretary of Textile Workers’ Union observed that the 1999 constitution guarantees basic human and workers’ rights. He however lamented that Nigerians’ constitutional rights were being implemented more “in the breach than compliance” sighting non-payment and delayed payments of what he called “miserable pay” by some state governors and private employers.

He said it was “unacceptable and counter productive” dramatizing and criminalizing workers’ skill gap when what was required was “skills upgrading and skills upliftment”. The labour leader observed that Section 34 (1) of 1999 constitution holds that every individual including working man and women is entitled to respect for the dignity of his/her person adding that exhibiting so-called failures of teachers or any worker during competence test violates their rights to privacy and dignity. “It is debatable if any of the states governors can truly pass competence/governance tests by Nigerians, but we all appreciate their weaknesses, we even re-elect some of them, only for them to degrade the workforce through punitive examinations not necessarily capacity building for improvement and promotion” the labour leaders said. According to him, Nigeria risks “perpetual underdevelopment if it refuses to treat its workforce better through training and training, better pay, work schedule and enforced discipline” adding that nations who holds labour as the most valued factor of production such as China and India are fast developing while Nigeria which alleges deride labour lags behind. The labour leader hailed President Muhammed Buhari for constantly tasking some recalcitrant governors on non-payment of salaries adding that “workers’ rights to living wage are human rights”.

Commending the activities of the President of Committee for the Defence of Human Rights, CDHR, Barrister Malachy Ugwummadu, the labour leader described CDHR as “ a strong African institution made of strong men and women who at the risks of persecutions by “military and civilian dictators” stood to defend, sustain and promote fundamental human rights of all Africans as guaranteed in the Nigerian Constitution, the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights. Comrade Aremu called on Federal legislators to strengthen the nation’s civil society, not weaken it adding that “only vibrant civil society groups could serve as a check on the political class over non-service delivery”For

  29. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
