We will continue to promote national unity, says NLC
The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has said that it would continue to promote the things that unite Nigerians and condemn those things that divide them.
President of NLC, Comrade Ayubba Wabba, made this known recently in Abuja while speaking with journalists, where he frowned at the level of bloodletting in the country.
He said, “We will continue to put the needed weight on the things that unite us and hold in contempt the things that seek to divide us. We encourage our political leaders to exemplify the same by their utterances and conduct. By so doing, we would be laying an enduring foundation for national peace, unity, and development.
“We demand that government must prioritise the security of lives and property. Nigeria has seen enough bloodshed. While we commend the sacrifice and commitment of our soldiers and other security personnel in the war against terrorist insurgency and other violent crimes across Nigeria, we urge government to do all it takes to end the bloodletting and brigandage in different parts of the country.
“As we have always canvassed, the war against insecurity must be anchored on human security. We must feed hungry stomachs. We must create jobs to engage our youths. An idle mind is devil’s workshop”.
“Nigerian workers under the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress will continue to work assiduously towards the promotion of national security, peace and unity.”
