Nigeria Labour Congress calls for action against Boko Haram sponsors.

The Nigeria Labour Congress-NLC has urged the Federal Government to reopen investigation into the cases of people indicted for sponsoring the Boko Haram sect in the country.

The President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, said in a statement that the liberty enjoyed by those sponsoring terror gangs was a grave danger to the country and advised the security forces to be resolute in the ongoing campaign against the insurgents and not to be demoralised by the multiple bomb attacks on Abuja.

He said the attacks were perpetrated by the insurgents with the intent to divert attention from the successes recorded against them by the security forces.

Wabba, who advised Nigerians to see the battle against terrorism as a collective one, urged them to volunteer every suspicious movement to the security forces for necessary action and called on the Federal Government to ensure the victims of the blasts were given the best medical treatment and attention.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum under the leadership of Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State has condemned the recent bombings in Kuje and Nyanya areas near Abuja, describing it as cowardly, brutish and offensive to the collective well-being of all Nigerians.

In a statement released in Abuja and signed by the Coordinator of the forum, Osaro Onaiwu, the PDP governors called on President Buhari and the security agencies to continue their efforts at bringing to justice those who continue to terrorize the nation, adding that the PDP governors will continue to support any such effort aimed at bringing peace and security to all Nigerians.

While sympathising with the families of the victims of the bombings, the PDP Governors’ Forum also called on Nigerians to be vigilant and report any suspicious movements to the security agencies.
