Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige will today inaugurate the board of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. This followed President Muhammadu Buhari’s redeployment of Comrade Frank Kokori from chairman-nominee of the NSITF to the board of Michael Imoudu National Institute for Labour Studies (MINILS), a diploma awarding labour institution.
President Buhari has on the recommendation of Ngige appointed Mr. Austin Enejamo-Isire, a Chartered Accountant as the chairman of the NSITF’s board. There has been a tussle between Ngige and the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) over the inauguration of the NSITF board. Last week, the NLC led its president, Ayuba Wabba picketed the Abuja residence of the minister.
