“Today, I salute all Nigerian workers for their sacrifice and resilience. All of you, across the nation, form the central bedrocks on which the building blocks of our national development are laid.

Without your individual and collective contributions to our economic growth, there can be no development in Nigeria. Hence, we must always recognize and celebrate the crucial roles that our workers have played and continue to play in all that we have achieved as a nation.

In this regard, on this Workers’ Day 2018 celebration, I want to urge all Nigerian workers to never relent in their efforts to grow our economy and build a stronger and safer Nigeria.

On our part, the National Assembly will always support all efforts geared at improving the remuneration and general conditions of service of Nigerian workers.

Again, Happy Workers’ Day!”
