Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 general election, has sent his warmest greetings to Nigerian workers in celebration of the Workers’ Day on May 1st, 2023.
In a statement on Monday, the former Governor of Anambra State urged workers to uphold the values that promote productivity in the country.
He encouraged them to view their jobs as a means of contributing to the nation’s development, emphasizing that if citizens understood the importance of nation-building, Nigeria would experience unprecedented growth and advancement.
Obi praised the Nigerian workforce for their hard work and dedication to the nation’s progress, despite their unfavorable working conditions. He stressed that the nation is blessed with diligent workers who are passionate about the country’s growth and development, and who continue to labor tirelessly for its advancement.
The message reads: “I encouraged the workers not to be disheartened by the many challenges that, today, pervade the economic and political space of the nation.
I want to assure you that the forces of darkness that have held this nation bound for long, will not continue to have their way. We are determined to take back our nation for good and we are not giving up.
“I urge you all to remain steadfast. The sun of justice, peace, and development will soon shine on our nation.”
