The women activists who joined the rest of the world on Saturday to commemorate the 2014 International Women’s Day at the Labour House in Abuja said women were the worst hit in times of social or economic crisis, adding that women will make representation to the Ministry of Women Affairs on the need to rise up against injustices against women.
Chairperson of the NLC Women Commission Lucy Offiong said women are adversely affected by the killings because they are not only killed but also abducted and turned to sex slaves.
 “We are saddened by the spate of killings in our dear country Nigeria, especially the recent dimension of targeting young people in schools and colleges.
 “The recent killings of student in Yobe and the abduction of girls by the Boko Haram sect; as mothers, we are greatly disturbed and condemn in strong terms such cruel, inhuman and senseless killings. We therefore call on the President of Nigeria to take immediate steps and put a final stop to these unwarranted killings,” Offiong said.
The NLC President Abdulwahed Omar in his remarks noted that the federal government may be plotting to privatise the downstream sector of the oil industry, hence the inexplicable fuel scarcity currently rocking the nation.
However, he said the NLC will lead Nigerians against any such plot, considering the fact that Nigeria is a major producer of oil, and does not have any business importing oil.
