Federal Government Seeks Support Of NURTW On Security Challenges.

President Buhari.

The Federal Government has solicited the support of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) to tackle insecurity across the country.


The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, urged the union to support the government in its efforts to rid the nation’s highways of violent crimes as he spoke yesterday at the ninth quadrennial conference of the NURTW in Abuja.

He said: “Let me use this important occasion to once again call on you to support this government as it evolves innovative measures to tackle the challenge of insecurity on our roads.
The union can specifically support the government in the fight against insecurity by providing timely information to the security agencies, particularly on all the black spots on the nation’s highways. Whether on intra or inter-state journeys, your members crisscross the length and breadth of this vast nation and, collectively, have great access to information that can help to make our roads safer.

“As government continues to frontally tackle the menace of insecurity, it is incumbent on all of us to collaborate in order to address the kidnapping, armed robbery and other forms of insecurity on our roads,” he said.
