The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said it will partner the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to monitor the disbursement and use of the N338 billion bailout funds in 27 states.
Its President, Comrade Ayuba bailout Wabba, in a statement in Abuja, said he had directed councils in the benefiting states to be on the alert.
The congress praised the commission for ensuring the return of about N1 billion being public funds criminally diverted by some corrupt officials of the Federal Ministry of Environment and the Federal Pay Office.
Wabba said the congress was in agreement with the commission that the painful days of the public “running after funds after appropriation” are over.
Wabba urged the relevant ministries and agencies of government to “ensure that the recovered looted funds were properly channelled to the activities they are meant for.”
