Fight Boko Haram like Ebola - NLC tells FG

President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Abdul-Waheed Omar, has asked the Federal Government to fight the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents with the same zeal it has been fighting the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease in the country.

Umar spoke at a one-day sensitisation on prevention of the EVD in the workplace, organised by the National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria in Kaduna on Monday.

"If Federal Government should fight Boko Haram the way it is fighting Ebola, then the insurgency would have ended since. So I call on the government to be as proactive to Boko Haram as it has done to Ebola," he said.

The NLC boss asked the government to redirect more energy and resources as in the case of the Ebola virus towards bringing to an end to the Boko Haram insurgency.

Omar also asked the Federal Government to address all outstanding issues with the Nigerian Medical Association and other health workers' bodies in the country.
