The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has elected former North West Vice President of the union, Comrade Ahmed Labbo as its new national president.
The election took place at Green Desert Palm Hotel, Airport Road, Kano.
Labbo’s election follows the death of the former National President, Comrade Ibrahim Khaleel Abdulkadir, on October 7.
It was gathered that the deceased was to complete his tenure in March 2021.
His demise created a vacancy, which according to NULGE, must be filled by the National Executive Council (NEC) of the union.
According to the union’s constitution, the national vice president was supposed to have taken over the leadership but he has been incapacitated by health challenge, it was learnt.
Following a motion by one of the members at an emergency meeting, NEC, which is composed of all NULGE States presidents and national officers of the union, unanimously picked Labbo, who is next in hierarchy.
There will be an election before March to throw up new officials, the union said.
Labbo paid glowing tribute to their deceased leader and sought contributions from his subordinates to enable him succeed.
“The responsibility is not an easy one but with your cooperation, the job will be easy for me.
