The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) has condemned in strong terms the worsening insecurity under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).


The TUC posits “no government sits and watches its people die like chickens.”


The Congress, which was thrown into mourning following the recent attack on Abuja-Kaduna train which killed its General Secretary and Kwara State Chapter Chairman, Musa-Lawal Ozigi,Esq.and Akin Akinsola, respectively, lamented that the present leadership in the country has performed far below average in providing security to Nigerians.

In a statement signed by its National President, Quadri Olaleye in Abuja, the TUC has demanded that the Buhari-led Federal government fish-out and prosecute those responsible for the attacks that have caused untimely death to many Nigerians.


To further express its displeasure over the wanton killings, the Congress has also put its affiliates across the country on alert in view of engaging the Government to perform its Constitutional responsibilities and directed the same to put on black hand bands to mark their displeasure over the insecurity which was claiming innocent lives each passing day.
