The president of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba, on Tuesday said there were attempts by some faceless groups to politicize, discredit, discourage and mobilize credible and patriotic voices against insecurity in the country.
Wabba, in a statement, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to rejig the security apparatus.

- Insecurity: We all have critical roles to play — Masari
He said: “Enough of the bloodshed already! We refuse to be reduced to a land of blood, tears, misery, fears and pains. Nigerians will not be cowed! Even the blind knows that the resurgence of insecurity in the country has taken very extreme dimensions.
“The lives of our fellow compatriots, many of whom are workers, have been turned into a living hell due to the protracted security challenge in the country. So, many lives, families, dreams and prospects have been torn asunder and many people have been inflicted with scars that may never heal throughout their lifetimes. And some people want Nigerians to be quiet. No way!”
Wabba said the NLC would not hesitate to expose those playing politics with the lives of ordinary Nigerians.
