All Nigerian governors and public office holders including politicians who are above 50 years have been asked by the leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) yesterday to step aside.

According to NLC, this development will be a mark of example, following their recommendation of early retirement of civil servants from age 50 and above.

However, the governors have prescribed early retirement of civil servants from age 50 and above as remedy to reposition the nation’s battered economy, Leadership Newspaper reports.

The NLC national president, Comrade Ayuba Wabba in a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, said the congress is dismayed by the prescriptions of the governors as he described the move as smack of extreme selfishness and insensate cruelty.

Meanwhile, with so much concern, Comrade Wabba stated that the best way to ensure better economy is for government to be decisive in curbing and punishing corruption, wastage, mismanagement, and maladministration in the petroleum sector.
