The Nigerian Labour Congress and its continued relevance

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself -Joy Bell C.

Benard Longe, the former managing director and chief executive officer of First Bank of Nigeria, was hated by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) over the reforms he initiated in the bank, which at the time he took over was literally speaking dead. With an aging workforce that was very comfortable, that in fact celebrated archaic banking as a way of life, a workforce that preferred the tally number system that kept its customers the whole day in the bank, a workforce that bluntly refused to embrace technology that made life easy.
