Abuja - The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) raised concern the fight against terror had not entirely been successful.
NLC President, Abdulwahed Omar, in a statement to commemorate May day, said the nation was thus confronted with “a very serious situation.”
“We do not need any one to tell us that we have a serious situation on our hands. The war on terror does not seem to be going on well at the moment.
Our security forces despite gallant efforts have suffered reversals, taking direct hits in their critical asset areas, raising concerns about their capacity or willingness to win this war,” said Omar.
He noted that security forces, even though gallant have not demonstrated enough resolve and lacked the capacity to end the crisis.
“We are not unaware of the complexities of a war of this nature but we demand better initiative and more commitment,” the NLC President stated.
The terror that the Boko Haram sect intensified in 2009 has claimed thousands of lives and left scores injured.
Vast property has been destroyed.
