TUC sues for peace
As Muslim faithful celebrate the Sallah, the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) has called on Nigerians to be self-disciplined and law-abiding to achieve the desired development the country craves for.
Besides, the congress expressed desire for a peaceful and development-conscious country, stating that this can only be achieved when youths are gainfully engaged.
In a statement jointly signed by its President, Bobboi Bala Kaigama and Secretary General, Musa-Lawal Ozigi, TUC said this is the time for Nigerians to submit themselves to the will of Allah in the belief that that He alone can help overcome their challenges.
TUC stated that the impoverished masses of the country are going through an excruciating experience presently and it beholves the wealthy and the privileged Nigerians to empathise with the needy, adding: “Painfully and regrettably, the order of the day has been flagrant transfer of our commonwealth to foreign banks, rather than making it useful for the nation where it is really needed.”
It said it was time the leadership at all levels have a rethink and redraw a workable roadmap capable of transforming the country’s economy.
“We have a challenge in our hands, as it is common to other nations of the world, but we can overcome if we lead a selfless life and be willing to work together.
“We expect that this celebration should humble every Muslims in particular and Nigerians in general in their service to God and to humanity,” the congress stated.
The labour union noted that an army of idle youths portends great danger for any society, saying: “while we celebrate with our Muslim brothers and sisters, we must be committed to sharing and caring for one another as Allah has directed.”
