Category: News Written by Sunday Isuwa, Kaduna
What is happening in some northern states, including Kaduna, Jos, Kano, Maiduguri and Yobe can be described as crises of governance, Vice President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) Issa Aremu has said. Addressing journalists in Kaduna yesterday, he noted that no religion teaches violence, and that the bad eggs in the society take advantage of the joblessness of the youths to cause mayhem.“The crises in Kaduna, Jos, Kano and even Maiduguri are all crises of governance. We therefore call on our current leaders to reflect on what our previous leaders did to turn crisis zones into homes of peace and prosperity,” he said.
Condemning the recent attacks in Zaria, Kaduna, and the reprisals that followed, Aremu called on the people of Kaduna State not to be willing tools for violence.
“The motto of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is ‘Labour Creates Wealth’. Nigerian workers must therefore join forces with progressive Nigerians in building a prosperous, harmonious and diverse country bequeathed on us by our founding fathers,” he said.
Aremu also called on the state governments, especially in the northern part of the country to get to the root of the crises.
