The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) says citizens must be prepared to make sacrifices for the country’s progress.
In a statement on Wednesday to mark Eid-al-Fitr, Ayuba Wabba, NLC president, said the action of citizens should be with every sense of love and patriotism.
Wabba noted that the Muslim celebration is coming at a time when the country is faced with challenges that have grave consequences for Nigerian workers.
“Eid-al-Fitr speaks of love and sacrifice. We must be prepared to make the needed sacrifice for the country,” he said.
”We must hear something, see something, say something and do something with every sense of love and patriotism to reclaim our dear motherland from the cataclysmic periphery that the enemies of Nigeria want us to fall headlong into.
“At the recent 2nd NLC National Summit on Peace and Security, Nigerians from all walks of life and professional calling were unanimous in their assessment of the security crisis in Nigeria.
”They said that something drastic must be done to stem this evil tide before it consumes all of us.”
He commended security agencies for their sacrifices, courage and commitment in the fight against terrorism and other forms of violent crimes.
He also congratulated Muslims on the Eid-al-Fitr celebration, and urged them to use the period to pray for Nigeria.
“Once again, we extend our best wishes for a fulfilling Eid-Al-Fitr to the Muslim Ummah, Nigerian workers and the good people of Nigeria,” Wabba said.
”May Allah’s blessings be multiplied on us and may our supplications during this holy month of Ramadan bring an end to the siege of insecurity, violence and chaos in Nigeria.”
