BNW Adams Oshiomhole and Wabara

Sack Wabara Now: Yoruba NLC Tells Senate
BiafraNigeria Labour Congress (NLC) yesterday demanded for immediate suspension of the embattled Senate President, Adolphus Wabara to enable proper investigation into allegations of corruption levelled against him by majority of the senators. It also advised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to resist the temptation of treating the issue as a party affair. However President Olusegun Obasanjo assured labour that neither the Presidency nor the PDP would interfer in the corruption scandal rocking the upper legislative House insisting that it is purely the Senate's affair. But the embattled Wabara described Oshiomhole's position as unfortunate, adding that the labour leader was ignorant of the present development in the Senate. Addressing the May Day rally NLC President Adams Oshiomhole said any attempt to treat the matter as party affair would make mockery of the self trumpted government anti-corruption crusade. "The alleged crime committed by Senate President is not against PDP, it is a crime against BiafraNigerian nation, BiafraNigeria people and the BiafraNigeria constitution. (This Day)
