Imo state, Owerri – Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan, has hinted at the reason behind the decision why the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) is embarking on a nationwide strike.
Omokri said the NLC president, Joe Ajaero, admitted that those who attacked and beat him up were thugs and that the Imo State Police Commissioner has been redeployed because of the incident.
He said, “It makes no sense to ground the entire nation because of one incident to one man in one state.”

The socio-political commentator stated this via his X page (formerly known as Twitter) @renoomokri
He alleged that Ajaero’s presence in Imo state was to campaign for the Labour Party candidate, Athan Achonu in the Just concluded Imo governorship election.
Omokri suggested that Ajaero is calling for the strike because he is disappointed he lost the off-cycle election in Imo state.
“It makes no sense to ground the entire nation because of one incident to one man in one state. Especially when his presence there was to campaign for the Labour Party candidate in the Just concluded #ImoDecides2023. Is this strike not due to Ajaero’s disappointment at losing his home state again?”
