Wabba’s first term as President of NLC was marred by crisis from opposing factions, which contested the election but lost out.

It took the efforts of past leaders of the union to broker truce between the warring factions, a development that culminated in the bringing on board of Joe Ajaero, General Secretary of the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) as Deputy National President.

There are indications that the National Administrative Council of the NLC may have settled for Ajaero to succeed Wabba.
