The Kaduna State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Tuesday called on its members to be orderly and ensure public safety during Wednesday’s mass demonstration over the removal of fuel subsidy.
NLC’s secretary in the state, Gado Titus, stated in Kaduna that the council was not oblivious to the volatile situation in the country but would not tolerate violence, vandalism, or illegal activities during the demonstrations.
“The law will be upheld, and those found to be inciting violence or participating in criminal acts will be held accountable for their actions,” he said.
Mr Titus assured workers of adequate security during the protest, adding that the council believed in workers’ right to peaceful protests and demonstrations.
“Let us come together as responsible citizens to express our dissatisfaction without infringing on the safety and security of our society.
“Our collective commitment to a peaceful and law-abiding society is crucial to the progress and prosperity of our nation,’’ Mr Titus stated.
Mr Titus argued that protests and demonstrations were fundamental aspects and pillars of democracy, allowing individuals to express their concerns and grievances respectfully and lawfully.
He stated that the council called for peaceful participation as the NLC prepared for the demonstration “to drive home the general dissatisfaction of workers over untold hardship caused by the anti-poor policies of the government.’’
