NLC Questions Buhari’s Effort In Fighting Insurgency

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has  joined the protest against incessant bloodshed by rampaging herdsmen across the country.

NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, while speaking yesterday, at the 2018 May Day lecture, in Abuja, said the incessant killings by herdsmen calls for question, whether the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari actually cares for its people.

He called on the federal government to wake up to its primary responsibility of protecting life and property of the citizenry as no excuse, whatsoever, should be given by the government, for the killings going on, especially in Benue, Taraba, Nasarawa and Zamfara states.

“Workers and Nigerians, at large, need to feel that there is actually a government in charge of their security; because the way Nigerian citizens are being killed by the day it is worrisome, and calls for question, whether there is, indeed, a government that actually cares for its people. So, we call on them to do the job they are meant to do, in the first place,” Wabba said.

The NLC president also charged workers across the country, to prepare towards fighting for better working condition and welfare.
