The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi, has charged Nigerian workers to promote work ethics that encourage productivity, even as he hailed them for their contributions to national growth. Obi stated this on the occasion of this year’s Workers’ Day Celebration,
In his message to workers made available to the press, Obi encouraged Nigerian workers to see their jobs as channels for contributing to nation building. He explained that the nation would grow and develop more if Nigerians understood that the task of nation building was for everyone.
He argued that Nigeria was gifted with a hardworking workforce, desirous of the country’s development. He explained that not minding poor workers’ welfare in the nation, the workers had continued to labour for the nation.
Obi encouraged the workers not to be disheartened by the many challenges that currently pervaded the economic and political space of the nation. He urged everyone to remain focused on building a more productive and prosperous nation, which, he said, were part of the offerings of the New Nigeria.
‘I want to assure you that the forces of darkness that have held this nation bound for long will not continue to have their way. We are determined to take back our nation for good and we are not giving up. I urge you all to remain steadfast. The sun of justice, peace and development will soon shine on our nation,’ Obi assured.
