President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Philibus Wabba, on his election as President of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the largest trade union federation in the world.

The President, in a statement signed by Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, yesterday, joined members of the NLC and all Nigerian workers in celebrating the election, which further signals the great work the union had been doing in ensuring the welfare of workers.
