One of the Presidential Candidates of the botched Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, election, Dr. Ayuba Wabba, has blamed the disruption and violence that marred the election on the Credentials Committee chaired by the President of Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Issa Feggae.

Addressing journalists on Friday at the national secretariat of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Abuja, Dr. Wabba who is also the President of Medical and Health Workers Union, accused two members of the Credentials Committee from Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG and National Union of Electricity Employees, NUEE, of being behind the fraud that characterized some of the ballot papers.

Although, he said that Chairman of the Committee, Feggae, was a credible person that he respects, some members of the committee he claimed tried to disrupt the process of the election by manipulating the process.

Wabba who denied that he was sponsored by government and powerful members of a particular political party that came with the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Gen. Muhhamadu Bahari at the opening session of the conference, also alleged that one of the candidates was sharing money to the delegates at the venue of the conference.
