The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called for increased vigilance, resilience, grit, discipline, patriotic commitment and innovative solutions by the Federal Government, security agencies and citizens to bring the reign of madness and impunity in Northeast to a conclusive end.
The congress also commiserated with the government and the entire people of Borno State on the recent gruesome aby the Boko Haram terrorists at Auno Town which is 24 kilometers from Maiduguri metropolis along the Maiduguri – Damaturu Highway.
NLC in a letter addressed to the state governor, Babagana Umaru Zulum, signed by the President of the NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba said this is the umpteenth time that insurgents would be attacking innocent commuters and villagers along this very important road artery in North Eastern Nigeria.
Wabba said: “This attack is clearly aimed at undermining the good efforts that your administration and our security forces are making to bring the current wave of terrorism and insurgency in the Northeast to an end and to restore the peace.
“At this rate, we have a duty to urge the government and our security services not to be discouraged. It is also important for government and our security forces to seriously consider adopting an entirely new approach to the fight against terrorism and insurgency especially in a manner that would break the spinal cord of those bent on unleashing mayhem on our people, their livelihoods and our collective sanity.
