The Nigeria Civil Service Union (NCSU) has asked its members to ensure that governors and other political actors with anti-labour and anti-people tendencies are voted out in the forthcoming general elections.
The Union also affirmed the outcome of 25th January, 2018 National Delegates Conference, which elected Comrade Lawrence Amaechi as its president and formally dissolved the caretaker committee put in place as a result of a judgement of the National Industrial Court.
Rising from its Special National Delegates Conference, the Union also called on all its members and Nigerian Citizens to vote wisely and rise up in defense of Democracy.
The National Industrial Court of Nigeria had ordered the immediate past leadership of the Union to take back the leadership of the union, an action which was complied with, before the leadership formally stepped down following the expiration of their tenure and a caretaker committee put in place, while the union went to appeal the judgement.
