Organised Labour Movement has affirmed that despite many problems facing Nigeria, the country is not a failed state.

The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria and the Nigeria Labour Congress stated this in separate statements issued to mark the country’s 55th Independence anniversary on Thursday in Lagos.

On his part, the TUC President, Bobboi Kaigama expressed hope that Nigeria would surely come out of its many challenges.

The labour leader stated that some of the challenges confronting the country were fueled by ethnicity, nepotism, unemployment, poverty and hunger, widespread corruption, non-ideology based politics, insecurity, insurgency and kidnapping.



According to him, others were mismanaged economy, free-fall of the Naira, high taxation, increase in electricity billing systems and casualisation of labour.

He said countries that were advanced in their democracies also had their peculiar problems, “yet their citizens have not dismissed them or redrawn their maps.”

Similarly, NLC President, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, also enjoined Nigerians to support the President in delivering improved governance.
