Comrade Ayuba Wabba, President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on the Federal Government to cut off the hands of those alleged to have looted Nigeria’s public treasury.
Speaking in Abuja on Thursday, Wabba said amputating the hands of looters will serve as deterrence to others while also shaming them.
He noted that the government must take concrete steps by proving to the world that it was serious about winning its ongoing anti-corruption fight.
Wabba stressed that by amputating looters, Nigerians will be able to identify them as those who stole public funds.
According to Wabba, “We must not allow a situation where few, because of their interest will hold the system to ransom.
“Why should somebody steal one billion naira and walk the street free. We are demanding that they should be named and shamed. We are also demanding that one of their hands be cut off so that when we see them, we will know that they are people that have stolen our money.
“So, let us not be tired. Not to pay salaries and pensions is criminal. Not to increase our wages in this condition is corruption and so, we must demand good governance and support the fight against corruption.
“It is obvious that what we are doing today is in our collect interest. As working class and our families and as Nigerians, we must always make our voice know and heard very clearly.
