President Tinubu assures Nigerian workers of end to worries at May day celebration



Tinubu encourages unity, constructive criticism among religious leaders

President Bola Tinubu, represented by Vice-President Kashim Shettima, addressed Nigerian workers at the 2024 May Day celebration, assuring them of an end to their worries.

He praised their contributions to the nation’s transformation and urged unity for progress.

In his speech, Tinubu stated, “I stand before you to tell a fundamental truth: you, the workers of our great nation, are its very backbone. But I’m not here merely to echo familiar praises of the labour force.”

He acknowledged the understanding, patience, commitment, and support trade unions have shown throughout the implementation of government’s policies and programmes aimed at transforming the nation.

Tinubu emphasized the theme “People First” for this year’s May Day celebration, stating that it is both instructive and commendable.

He said, “The theme resonates with the government’s agenda and demonstrates that the working class holds a central position in the affairs of this nation.”

Regarding the minimum wage negotiation, Tinubu assured, “Since then, the committee, in collaboration with labour leaders, has been diligently working towards proposing a new National Minimum Wage.

“Unfortunately, despite concerted efforts, the committee was unable to reach a consensus at its last meeting.

“This shall be resolved soon and I assure you that your days of worrying are over.”

He concluded by urging trust in the administration’s efforts, stating, “The seeds of greatness planted in our nation are beginning to bear fruit, and they promise a future filled with hope and bound by prosperity.”
