The National Union of Agriculture and Allied Employees (NUAAE) Hadejia/ Jama’are branch has disassociated itself from the news making the rounds in the social media purporting that the Association took the Minister of Water Resources, Engr Suleiman Adamu Hussaina and Managing Director Lower Niger River Basin Development Authority, Dr. Saeed Aremu to the Industrial Court in Akure, Ondo state.
Astatement by the secretary of NUAAE Hadejia/ Jama’are branch, Comrade Salisu Umar Gano, denied knowledge of any negative development and was neither consulted by the Kano state council, the national body nor the FMWR/RBD as trade group forum, before the unfortunate decision was taken.
Gano said the NUAAE Hadejia/Jama’are River Basin Development Authority branch (HJRBDA) is not a party to action that would tarnish the image of the minister.
The statement called on “the national body of our great Union (NUAAE) to withdraw this case from court and revert to the negotiation table with a means to resolving the issue amicably.
“We would also want to use this medium to advice the Lower Niger Basin Development Authority branch of the union and indeed the Kwara state council that unionism is now dialogue and diplomacy.
“Finally, we want to make a strong call on the National President of NUAAE, comrade Simon Anchever to do whatever is humanly possible and resolve this issue and also call the kwara state council to order.”
