Festus Osifo, president of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), has said that Adams Oshiomhole does not have enough information on the ongoing strike called by organised labour.
On Tuesday, the former Edo governor, while addressing journalists at the presidential villa, said the ongoing strike is politically motivated.
Speaking in an interview on Wednesday, Osifo said, Oshiomole, commented on the strike based on information passed from the presidential villa.
The former president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), asked organised labour to prioritise the rights of workers rather than engage in politics.
During the interview, Osifo said Oshiomhole should have reached out to union leaders for facts, knowing that he is busy with national politics
The TUC president said Ajaero did not travel to Imo state on November 1 to entertain political issues.
“Our senior comrade, Adams Oshiomhole, is giving opinion based on the information he has,” he said.
“Today, he is a senator who is busy with national politics. I think he does not have sufficient information, maybe later we will give him as much information as possible, once he reaches out.
“He went to the villa to meet with them. That is the information that was given to him in the villa. Has he spoken to Joe Ajaero and senior labour leaders in the country to have their opinion?
“Maybe the information he (Oshiomhole) got from the villa was that he (Ajaero) went there to play politics.
“But I will tell him clearly that was not the case.”
