Insecurity: Let Security Chiefs Bear Consequences Of Crimes – Comrade Aremu


BY AMOS TAUNA, KADUNA – General Secretary, National Union of Textile, Garment Tailoring Workers, Garment and Tailoring Workers in Nigeria, Comrade Isa Obalowu Aremu has said that security chiefs in the country should be made to bear the consequences of insecurity in the country as a way out of the menace.

This is just as he said that the number of Police personnel in the country is grossly inadequate to cover millions of Nigerians, pointing out that countries with less population have more police personnel than Nigeria.

According to him; “Nigeria needs more police personnel that are properly equipped to be able to stand any criminal activities in the land. Allowances of security personnel should be a priority to be able to prepare them for the great task ahead.”

Aremu however stressed that any security chief that failed to ensure the protection of lives and property within his jurisdiction should be sacked while those that performed excellently should be compensated.

Speaking in Kaduna on Tuesday as the guest speaker on “Workers Unity for Socio-economic and Political Advancement,” Aremu noted that the insecurity challenges confronting the country has become so unbearable that the lives and property of Nigerians are no longer save.

He further said; “The crisis rocking most parts of the country is purely a war between the poor. It is only the poor that are being killed and their property destroyed.

“The unity of Nigerian workers is inevitable in order to enshrine sanity into the system by ensuring social justice and fairness to all Nigerians irrespective of tribe, religion and region but a collective fight for the overall interest of all.”

Aremu enjoined Nigerian workers to unite to bring an end to the crisis rocking northern Nigeria, stressing that all hands must be on deck to fight a common front towards resolving issues beyond religion, tribe and ensure the unity and progress of the country.

He said; “Workers should learn to vote for their fellow workers that are seeking elective positions and politicians that have unquestionable characters in order to restore the country’s past glory where things worked for the general good of the people.

“Leaders should be voted base on what they can do for the people not where they come from. Our past leaders like Tafawa Barewa, a teacher, was elected and Ahmadu Bello, the Sarduna of Sokoto was an administrator, a civil servant was also elected into sensitive positions to lead the affairs of the country and they performed excellently.”

On the continued crisis in Kaduna, he said, “It is unacceptable for a state like Kaduna to be known with all manners of violence for years without any breakthrough. The workforce should ensure the situation is brought under control. There should be unity of purpose beyond religion and tribe to be able to forge ahead to ensure permanent peace in the state.”

In his own speech, a Labour activist, Alhaji Suleiman Damzaki said the transport sector has been left with government paying little or no attention, adding that there is no epidemic that consume people’s lives like the transport sector.

Earlier, the state NLC chairman, Comrade Suleiman Ayuba called for the unity of Nigerian workers as the only way to fight against evil forces working against the unity, peace and development of the country.
