‘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’
The Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has felicitated with Nigerian workers during the May 1, 2023 Workers’ Day celebration, urging them to hold onto the values that boost productivity in the nation.
In his goodwill message to workers on the occasion, Obi advised Nigerian workers to use their jobs as channels for contributing to nation-building.
He assured that the nation would grow and develop more if Nigerians understood that the task of nation-building was for everyone.
He disclosed that Nigeria was gifted with a hardworking workforce, desirous of the country’s development.
He said that despite poor workers’ welfare in the nation, the workers had continued to labour for the nation.
Obi also urged the workers not to be disheartened by the many challenges that pervade the economic and political space of the nation, while advising everyone to remain focused on building a more productive and prosperous nation, which he said, is part of the offerings of the New Nigeria.
“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,” Obi said.
