Former Vice President of Nigeria and Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has congratulated Nigerian workers on the event of this year’s Workers Day.

In a goodwill message, the former vice President eulogized the various labour unions in Nigeria for being dependable watchdogs that serve the interest of the Nigerian people.

He added that the workers unions in Nigeria have been a critical partner in the economic development of the country.

“Over the years, the various labour unions in Nigeria have played pivotal intermediary role between the government and the people and the most recent of which is the agitation for increased minimum wage of N30,000. I congratulate the labour unions in Nigeria for this feat and I believe that with the same kind of determination, it is possible to further improve the lots of the Nigerian worker.

“With the efforts and creative energies of Nigerian workers, I believe that it is very possible to create economic buoyancy in Nigeria and redefine our destiny in the world as a centre of prosperity and refuse to be the capital of the world’s poor people.”

“I want to join several other well-wishers to celebrate with Nigerian workers on today’s Workers Day  and  also to assure the labour unions of an acknowledgement of their great sacrifices for the country,” Atiku said.

In conclusion, Atiku urged the organized labour under their various professional unions to embrace the paths of peace, harmony and national unity in all their engagements with employers of labour and governments at all levels.
