Labour Attacks Tinubu’s aide over Blackmail Claim


The Organised Labour has hit out at the Special Adviser to the president on Information and Strategy, Chief Bayo Onanuga.

The latter had said the ongoing nationwide strike embarked on by the Organized Labour is an attempt to blackmail President Tinubu.

Onanuga’s comment has drawn him vitriol from Nigeria Labour Congress.

The latter’s head of information, Benson Upah tore into the former Managing Director of News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, saying in a statement he authored, “We would have ignored Bayo Onanuga, Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy because we know him plus his penchant for unwarranted bellicosity and belligerence.

“We could equally have forgiven him, knowing full well that overzealous hirelings like him easily go into overdrive in the mistaken belief that they’d earn the confidence of their principals.’’
