Kaduna NLC Mourns 36 Workers Killed By Bandits

Chairperson of the Kaduna State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Ayuba Magaji, has said 36 workers lost their lives to banditry in the state, hence the May Day was being celebrated by the workers with sober reflection.

He called for one-minute silence and prayed for the souls of the comrades who lost their lives as a result of insecurity and other harsh conditions within the year.

Magaji also lamented the continuous hostilities between the state government and workers, saying that workers had suffered high inflation and traumatic situation due to insecurity in the land.

In his address yesterday at the May Day celebration held at Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna, Magaji encouraged the workers to obtain their permanent voter cards and vote out politicians who would not defend their interest.

The theme of this year’s Workers’ Day celebration was “Labour, leadership and the quest for Good Governance and Development in Nigeria.”

The NLC leader said the International Workers’ Day had come to symbolise the “never-say-never willingness of the working class to keep the wheels of wealth creation rolling”.
