The Federal Government through the Ministry of Labour and Employment has withdrew the Certificate of Registration of the Agricultur­al and Allied Employees Union of Nigeria (AAEUN), which automatically amounts to non­existence of the Union.

In compliance with a court order APP.NO.CA/L/92/10, Suit No. FHC/L/CS/311/2009, prior to issuance of a new certificate in the name of Ag­ricultural and Allied Union of Nigeria (AAEUN).

According to a letter from the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, and addressed to the General Secretary of AAWUN, FG declined recognition of both AAEUN and AAWUN as a re­sult of the court judgement.

Signed by the Director, Trade Union Services and Industrial Relations, Mrs. O. U. Akpabio on behalf of the minister, the letter read: “I am directed to refer to the above mentioned Suit and Appeal Court Judg­ment involving your union and to inform you that the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, pursuant to its statutory mandate of ensur­ing a peaceful industrial rela­tions climate, and especially in compliance with the con­sent judgement as referred to above has decided as follows;

“The Ministry forthwith declines recognition of both the Agriculture and Allied Employees Union of Nige­ria (AAEUN) and the Agri­culture and Allied Workers Union (AAWUN) factions as unions in the Agriculture Sector.
