He complained about the state of affairs in various sectors of the country and hoped that the future government would not follow the current line.

Ajaero spoke during a visit to the Secretariat of the Union of Public Corporations, Public Technical, and Recreational Services Officers (AUPCTRE) in Almagamated, Abuja. Continue Reading>>>>

According to him, “we want a government that Nigerians will enjoy, and this underdevelopment will end because Nigeria is developing. We will cancel everywhere. When Buhari took over in the power sector, for example, they averaged 4,000 to 5,000 megawatts, but in the last eight years, we have dropped to about 3,000. It moves us back to where we were. The ASUU strike used to last for 3-4 months; under Buhari’s leadership, we started recording the 8 months ASUU strike.

“If you check the infrastructure, it’s still the same. While we used to pay 50,000 Naira for a plane ticket, today it is about 80,000 Naira.”

On his expectations for the new administration, the labor leader said, “We are still waiting to get their own agenda because if we go by the APC manifesto, they support what Buhari has done, and if they support underdevelopment, then there is a problem. So the NLC are waiting for the new government’s agenda before we comment. You can see that the parties are no longer implementing their manifestos. That is why we are worried. We cannot talk about the agenda of any government. We can only wait for them to announce their agenda. But I am saying this is an APC government, and usually parties support their ideology.
