Ex-Ekiti NLC boss threatens court action over N350m fraud

Former Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in Ekiti State, Mr. Ade Adesanmi has threatened to contest accusation of bribe levelled against him and his colleagues in court.

They were accused of receiving money  and land from former Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose .

Adesanmi and others said they may have no option than to sue a former labour leader in the state, who they alleged of being behind the fake and defaming petition, if he fails to retract the accusation with immediate effect.

A petition written to the state government leading to the constitution of a probe panel , had accused Adesanmi and six other labour top brass of allegedly collecting N6 million monthly running grant and another N6 million quarterly as meeting allowances as well as landed property from the immediate past government.

In a statement in Ado Ekiti on Sunday, Adesanmi described the petition as a clear case of “blackmail, backstabbing and defamation” of his person and others.

Contrary to widespread insinuation in some quarters, Adesanmi said no query had been issued by the state government since they have neither been indicted or guilty of the said accusation.

He, however, exonerated Governor Kayode Fayemi’s administration of blame, saying they only acted based on ‘frivolous and spurious’ allegations raised against them as civil servants.

Adesanmi said there was need to put an end to the recurrent cases of backstabbing and pull him down syndrome within the labour circle in Ekiti, to prevent the labour centres from being weakened and politicised.
