Workers Day: We’ll provide better working conditions, fair wages – Tinubu promises

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has pledged that his administration will provide better living and working conditions for all workers across Nigeria.

A statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the president, Ajuri Ngelale said Tinubu made this pledge on Wednesday, May 1, in his maiden May Day message dedicated to working Nigerians, noting that the “custodians of the nation’s machinery deserve a fair wage and enhanced welfare.”

The statement reads; “President Tinubu strongly believes that the custodians of the nation’s machinery deserve a fair wage and enhanced welfare and that a labourer is deserving of not just any reward but fair and commensurate wages.

“The President assures Nigerian workers of his dedication to not only improving their welfare but also enhancing their working conditions and providing the necessary tools for them to succeed”.

President Tinubu also saluted Nigerian workers for their “fidelity to the peace, progress, and development of the nation evident in their tireless efforts and patriotic zeal to keep the national engine running.”

He commended the workers across all spheres, from the clerical officer who ensures the proper documentation and distribution of correspondence; the security officer who remains ever dutiful through all seasons; and the teacher who secures the future of our nation by imparting knowledge to the next generation; the doctor who works relentlessly to save precious lives; and all Nigerian workers who keep the candle aflame.
