The National Union of Food, Beverages and Tobacco Employees (NUFBTE) has dismissed 21 of its members over gross anti-union conduct and infraction against its constitution.

The NUFBTE National President, Mr. Lateef Oyelekan, and Acting General Secretary, Mr. Mike Olarenwaju, made this expulsion known in a statement on Wednesday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that in September 2020, the union had been rocked by a leadership crisis. Mr. Peter Onoja, the union’s former National Signing Trustee, now among the expelled members, had claimed that the union had two factions and named himself president of one of the factions.

Both Onoja and the union’s former General Secretary, Mr. Bamidele Busari, who was also expelled, had called for an end to illegality in the union.
