The first Monday in May will be a federally declared holiday honoring this year’s Workers Day event.
Rauf Aregbesola, the interior minister, made the news on Friday in a statement that was also signed by Shuaib Belgore, the permanent secretary of the interior ministry.
While commending workers for their hard work, diligence and sacrifice, Aregbesola stated that their efforts are largely responsible for the greatness of the country and the respect Nigeria has in the comity of nations.
“There is dignity in labour, we have to have dedication and commitment to the work we do because it is vital to nation-building.
“The end of work is productivity. It is productivity that leads to the satisfactory provision of goods and services and wealth creation.
“It is therefore the path to national and individual prosperity”, he said.
The minister further urged workers in the country to raise the bar of their trade in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s drive to upgrade the vehicle of governance and make citizens derive maximum benefit from the nation.
