The minister of aviation and aerospace development, has accused the opposition Labour Party of using the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to disrupt economic activities in the country.
Keyamo made the accusation while reacting to the closure of the entry and exit gates of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport by the NLC and Trade Union Congress (NLC) on Thursday.
The minister appealed to labour leaders to cease disruption of aviation activities across the country.
Condemning the alleged molestation of the NLC chairman, Joe Ajaero, the minister advised people to avoid environments that will cause such manhandling.
“Aviation was not involved in the alleged molestation of the labour leader. Please, leave aviation alone. In targeting aviation, it affects both foreigners. They are disrupting the entire country. They are my friends, I have been part of them,” Keyamo said.
“Do not allow the Labour Party to destroy the labour movement. Call your leaders together. In other climes were these happen the Labour movement are the owner of the party, here they don’t own the party.The Labour movement cannot be hirelings of the Labour Party.
“This is my appeal to them, do not destroy yourselves on the platform of politics. They should not target aviation and please not bring politics to aviation. What they are doing is politics, not labour movement. It is not fight for the workers. It’s politics.
“I condemn what happened to my friend, Ajaero. But in the same breath, you should not find yourself in such place,” he added.
