The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, has decried the increased state of insecurity in the country.
Naija News learnt that Mr Wabba disclosed this in a message to state delegates conference of the Congress yesterday.
According to Waba, the current security system has failed the country.
“There is hardly any day that passes without one incident of armed robbery, kidnap for ransom, militancy or terrorism attack making headlines. “We call on government at both federal and state levels to urgently rejig our security architecture, structure, and management.
“Clearly, the current approach has failed. We also call for a robust and sustainable response to renewed security challenges in our country. “Even if that means an increase in the budget for internal security so long it is judiciously and transparently used.
“The political arena offers one of the most effective spaces for tackling almost all the challenges that we have already highlighted to bring about socio-economic transformation.“Unfortunately, the conduct of the last general election left a lot of sour taste in the mouth,‘’ he said.
The NLC president, also, called on workers to be conscious of the fact that minimum wage was not a gift to them from the government.
