The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has urged the Federal Government to intensify efforts to ensure the release of the remaining 113 Chibok girls in captivity.
President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba made the call in a statement on Wednesday.
Abba warned politicians against politicising the release of the girls.
Wabba stated that the Congress was shocked by the negative comments made in some quarters about the release of the Chibok girls.
He said, “We would want to commend the government for securing the release of 82 additional Chibok girls from captivity. The government’s effort represents a commitment to its promise and obedience to public pressure.
“We also wish to express our profound happiness and relief as this set of girls re-unite with friends and families.
“The government should leave no stone unturned in order to ensure that the remaining 113 girls are freed.
“We are appalled by negative comments from some quarters about the circumstances surrounding the release of the 82 girls.
“We must not hesitate to caution those who seek to politicise everything in the land that whatever goes round, comes round, and above all, to note life is sacrosanct and that nothing supersedes it.”
