Comrade David Ojeli (1933-2023)


by Ejike Anyaduba

Foremost Nigerian Trade Unionist and community leader, Comrade David Ojeli, recently died at the age of 90 and will be buried Dec 9, 2023.

Ojeli was a Labour leader of note who fought many battles and led several agitations for better working conditions of the Nigerian workers. He was fearless and committed to the workers almost to the point of denying himself. A shrewd negotiator, he was hardly intimidated by the state into settling for less of the workers' demands. Quite consistent, he carefully shunned episodic moments when agitating for the rights of workers as has become common in the Union struggle over the years. In fact, Ojeli’s time as the national president of the Nigerian Civil Service Union (NSCU), which spanned the period between 1977 and 1986, was perhaps the most glorious in the lives of the Nigerian civil servants.
