The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Lagos State Council, has urged Nigerian workers to be security conscious.
In a statement issued by the council chairman, Comrade Deji Elumoye, and Secretary, Comrade Sylva Okereke , the union felicitated with all workers across the country, especially in the Centre of Excellence.
The council also urged workers to be mindful of happenings within their environment and not be carried away by the euphoria of the celebration in view of recent bomb attacks on media houses and other working places.
“We have all seen that workers are now been targeted. They’ve bombed media houses and universities where workers have been maimed and killed.
“So, we urge you to be very conscious of your surroundings and be vigilant in your neighbourhood “the union said. Lagos NUJ however did not fail to admonish the government over the insecurity problem in the nation,” it said.
It reiterated its earlier call on President Goodluck Jonathan to live up to his office as Commander-in-Chief and rid the country of the criminal activities of the Boko Haram sect and other crimes.
The council also prayed for the repose of the soul of departed workers and spared a thought for those alive, praying that their labour shall not be in vain.
