The Anambra State former Governor, Mr. Peter Obi, on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, commended the Nigerian workers for their commitment, as they celebrate this year’s Workers Day.
He reminded them that it was their labour that keeps Nigeria going.
The former governor, who spoke in Lagos,
called on those owing workers to seek ways to clear their debts.
He emphasized the need to take care of pensioners, stressing that they contributed to the growth of the wealth of the nation in their productive years and need special care at old age.

Obi, who lamented the state of employment in Nigeria, called on the government to create enabling environment and support the growth of the private sector to boost job creation.
According to him, the level of unemployment in Nigeria is unacceptable.
He also appealed to the government to intensify efforts on security in view of the rising insecurity in all parts of the country.
He said that beyond the effect on Nigerians, that the incessant news of insecurity scare the willing investors.
On what he called the unprecedented polarization among Nigerians, Obi said that Nigerians needed comprehensive re-assurance by those in authority to restor trust, peace and unity among Nigerians.
