He described as apt and timely this year’s May Day theme: “Labour, Politics and Quest for Good Governance and Development in Nigeria”.
He said, “Workers have been partners in progress with our administration in service delivery, providing the dividends of democracy and good governance. We will continue to strive to ensure that our workers get the best and their welfare will continue to be our priority.
“I, therefore, urge you not to relent in your support for this administration and to always discharge your duties efficiently and effectively.”
He assured that his administration would continue to do its best to live up to its responsibilities and cater for the workers within available resources, calling for collective sacrifice and solidarity in the mid of daunting socio-economic challenges.
While acknowledging the cooperation of the organised labour with this administration, the governor assured that his government would continue to remain favourably disposed towards the welfare of workers.
