The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has commended Nigerian workers as they celebrate workers’ day today.
In a message made available to the press, the former Governor said that workers throughout the world deserved to be celebrated because from the labour of their hands the machinery of Government was perennially kept afloat. He commended their commitment and efforts in spite of many challenges they face, ranging from what he called “salary issues to poor working condition defined by paucity of infrastructure.”
While noting that workers were among the people that make the greatest sacrifice for the good and development of the State, he advised them to also take the opportunity of the celebration and look inwards by sparing a moment’s reflection on the trajectory the country is moving and resolve to be part of positive changes that would make the country greater.
Obi also called on those that govern states to always take the welfare of workers at heart by prompt payment of salaries, and as well as by treating pensioners with care and love.
