Assets Declaration-President and Others should become Role Models-Former TUC chairman

Eco 1President Ahmed Tinubu, his Vice, state Governors and other elected political office holders in Nigeria have been called upon to become role models by immediately declaring their assets.

This call was made by a former chairman of the Oyo state council of the Trade Union Congress(TUC), Comrade Andrew Emelieze.

''This is an opportunity for President Ahmed Tinubu, Vice President Kashim Shettima, state Governors and other elected representatives of the people to become role models through leading by example. They should immediately declare their assets for Nigerians to repose unwavering trust in them. By delaying declaring their assets, they are not setting a good example for others to follow. For them to enjoy the support and trust of Nigerians, let them make the declaration of their assets public. This would serve as a solid basis in their fight against corruption,'' Comrade Emelieze posited.

Similarly, members of the Non Academic Staff Union and Associated Institutions(NASU) University College Hospital(UCH) branch, Ibadan, Nigeria have expressed helplessness over the prohibitive cost of the Premium Motor Spirit(PMS).

The members made their position known through an Ex-Officio of the union, Comrade Emmanuel Olaleye.

''We don't have any power, both cash and kind. Manage,ment is yet to put any palliatives in place for workers, because the Federal Ministry of Health gives the directives. UCH does not have staff buses for its workers. We have only educated our members to reduce extravagant lifestyles. We hope the hardships will be temporary,'' Comrade Olaleye stated.

However, in his view, the chairman of the branch, Comrade Kehinde Abiona disclosed that the national leadership of the union had taken a position on the matter, saying, ''''it is a welcome development, we are going to pass through it and get over it.''
