Former workers of Nigeria Airways Limited on Tuesday, February 5, promised to stage a mega rally in Lagos state to declare their support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s candidacy in the forthcoming presidential election.
Daily Trust reports the pensioners and ex-workers of the defunct national carrier made the announcement in a statement signed on their behalf by Lookman Animashaun and Sam Nzene in the state saying a similar rally will be held in Kano.
They explained that President Buhari had wiped away their tears after 14 years of neglect, humiliation and frustration by previous administrations, which led to the death of over 800 of their members.
They also blasted past administrations which they said only made promises that were never kept, describing Buhari as a man of his words. They expressed confidence that the Buhari’s administration would soon pay the balance of their entitlements.
