NLC seeks improved security ahead of workers’ day
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) yesterday called for concerted efforts by all Nigerians to end the insecurity being witnessed in the country.
The union said this in statement on preparations for this year’s Workers Day, which is marked annually on May 1st.
The celebration, which has as its theme: ‘Building Enduring Peace and Unity: Panacea for Sustainable National Development,’ will be conducted under tight security with President Goodluck Jonathan, members of the cabinet and parliament to be in attendance.
Speaking at press conference on the event, Comrade Lucy Offiong, the vice president of the congress said everyone should give assistance to security agencies on suspicious movements in their neighborhood.
“…because these attacks are unconventional and conventional security forces need community assistance to succeed in combating these attackers,” she said.
The NLC also tasked the government on jobs creation and poverty reduction which it links to the growing insecurity and crimes in the society.
