Some key members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have voiced their disapproval of the Nnewi convention where the embattled Chairman, Julius Abure and his executive members were re-elected unopposed on Wednesday, describing it as a futile exercise.

The Chairman of the National Convention and Deputy Governor of Abia State, Mr. Ikechukwu Emetu declared Abure the winner during the party’s national convention that held in Nnewi, Anambra State.

Abure has been having a running battle with the NLC leadership led by Joe Ajaero.

Some of the labour organisation’s key figures who have been condemning the convention include the NLC youth leader who was on AIT Network News at 8 pm on Wednesday and described the exercise as an illegitimate one which cannot stand the test of the legal process.

Earlier, the NLC called for Abure’s resignation as party chairman and the immediate constitution of a caretaker transition committee to organise a legitimate and all-inclusive national convention for the party.
