Monday has been designated a holiday by the federal government in honor of Workers’ Day.
Every year on May 1, people celebrate Workers’ Day.
The announcement was made on Friday by Shuaib Belgore, the ministry’s permanent secretary, on behalf of Rauf Aregbesola, the interior minister.
Aregbesola praised employees for their tenacity, devotion, and sacrifice in making Nigeria an example of greatness to other countries.
“There is dignity in labour. We need to have dedication and commitment to the work we do because it is vital to nation-building,” the minister said.
“The end of work is productivity. It is productivity that leads to satisfactory provision of goods and services and wealth creation. It is therefore the path to national and individual prosperity.”
In keeping with the policies of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, he advised workers to prioritize production and raise the bar for their profession.
Aregbesola praised security forces for their accomplishments in the fight against crime nationwide and urged them to persevere in their mission to completely eradicate terrorism.
