Speaking during the rally, the State Chairman of NLC, Comrade Yekini Agunbiade said the rally was in line with the directive of the national leadership of the Congress to support the ongoing war against corruption.
Comrade Agunbiade said corruption had created a bad image for the country and its citizens, pointing out that it has also led to factory closures, retrenchment and worsened the unemployment situation in Nigeria.
Speaking in the same vein, the State Chairman of the Trade Union Congress, Comrade Kola Olumoh stressed the need for Nigerians to support President Buhari’s efforts in eliminating corruption in the country.
The rally which started at the Labour House, beside the State High Court Ilorin, took members of the organised labour through Ahmadu Bello Way to the Government House to submit a letter in support of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Anti-Corruption crusade.
