“Anyone who knows where he (Ayuba Wabba) is hiding should give a message to Ministry of Justice @MOJKaduna. KDSG,” he said.

The governor went on to say, “There will be a handsome payout!”

The statement was issued after Wabba, on Monday, led members of NLC on a protest against the policies of El-Rufai’s administration.

The protest crippled economic activities.
Banks, hospital, train station, airport were shut while the state was plunged into darkness as electricity workers also joined the mass action.

Addressing members of the unions at the NLC secretariat on Monday, Wabba emphasized that the organized labor would not back down until the demands are acceded to by the governor.
“The decision has been communicated to all security agencies of the government.

It is the beginning of the struggle of labour and we hope our politicians will cooperate with us to ensure we protect our democracy by delivering its dividends to the citizens including workers.”

“Organised labor is in Kaduna to tell the world the truth of what the workers, pensioners, students, and other citizens in the state are going through besides the lies being peddled by media platforms on El-Rufai’s payroll.

“The situation of the workers in the state is so pathetic that thousands of them have been laid off from their sources of livelihood without the state government making any effort to pay them their entitlements.

“Worst still, El-Rufai has gone further to increase school fees in public state school thereby making the children of those sacked from their working place without payment to become dropouts.

“It is only Kaduna State out of the other states in the country that throws workers out of their jobs without any regard for the labor law and that is why we are here.”
