NLC Mourns Late Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu

The Nigeria Labour Congress NLC has expressed grief at the news of the demise of Imo North lawmaker, Benjamin Uwajumogu who passed away on Wednesday 18 December.

A statement signed by the General Secretary of NLC, Emmanuel Ugboaja said Senator Uwajumogu who until his death was the Chairman, Senate Committee on Employment, Labour and Productivity, was one of Nigeria’s most patriotic individuals well known for his commitment to legislations aimed at entrenching good governance in the country.
 

The statement further said; "...we can testify to his exceptional commitment to deepening democracy and promoting workers interest across the country.
Remarkable was the industry, commitment, and maturity demonstrated by Senator Ben Uwajimogu during the negotiations for consequential adjustment in salaries arising from the new national minimum wage. 


"Senator Uwajimogu’s intervention helped to temper frayed nerves and prevent industrial relations dynamics in the country, at that time, from skidding off the cliff.
An experienced legislator who was once the Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Senator Uwajumogu will undoubtedly be missed by the entire trade union movement in Nigeria.


"On behalf of all Nigerian workers, we extend our condolences to his family, constituency and the national assembly on his untimely death just as we pray for the repose of his soul. We also pray that God provide his family and all those he left behind all they require to bear his eternal absence."
