His words: “I celebrate all Nigerian workers on this year’s #International WorkersDay. You are a major pillar for the development and survival of our nation.
“Your commitments and sacrifices to the progress of our country have been a major reason why we have continued to exist as one nation and recorded many victories in times of global and national challenges.
“During this COVID- 19 pandemic, many of you have been at the vanguard of protecting lives and giving hope to millions of people.
“No matter the challenges we face today as a country, I urge us to remain selfless in service, patriotic in action and focused on the cause of nation-building.
“Let us continue to serve with honour, dignity and love in whatever place we find ourselves so that we can achieve peace, unity and progress in all our lands”.
