The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has implored the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari to revive the Ajaokuta Steel Complex in Kogi state.

President of the Congress, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, who disclosed this in his May Day address in Lagos at the weekend, said the revival of the multi-million dollar Complex would spur industrialization and create job in the country.

“This edifice was conceived to be the cornerstone of our administration. Unfortunately, our political class has refused to accept the simple truth that no country can truly industrialize without any iron and steel industry. The fate of Aladja, Osogbo, Jos and Katsina steel rolling mills post privatization is too grim to recall here,’’ he said.

Wabba, who was represented at the rally by his Vice President, Comrade Adelegan Solomon, bemoaned the growing unemployment in the land, saying the development is unbecoming of the stature of Nigeria among comity of nations.

He said his leadership will take up all levels of government on their commitment to job creation in line with the promise of in-coming government to create three million jobs annually in the country.
