Labour condemns invasion of Senate, describes it as injury to democracy

Date: 2018-04-20

 

A NEC Member of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Issa Aremu has condemned the invasion of the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly and disruption of the Senate plenary.

Comrade Aremu said "an injury to the National Assembly is an injury to the nation's democracy" adding that the "Federal government probe of the invasion should be prompt and conclusive with the objective of prevention of future acts".

The labour leader said the unfortunate senate event was a rude awakening to all for good governance with respect to security of lives and property as contained in 1999 constitution.

According to him, what the Senate just witnessed had been "the routine lots of many defenseless Nigerians" who are daily physically assaulted by criminals in homes, on the roads and in their communities.

Comrade Aremu said while nothing could justify thuggery at the Senate, the leadership of the National Assembly must also stop criminalizing dissenting views of democratically elected members.
