The party noted that the Nigerian workers have continued to work hard in every sector to ensure the unity, stability and economic growth of our dear nation as well as standing as a strong voice for the entrenchment of equity, social justice and rule of law in the polity.
PDP lamented as depressing, that the 2020 Workers Day came at a time when the world is on lockdown over the COVID-19 pandemic, but noted that such does not detract from the essence of the celebration while saluted them on the occasion of this year’s Workers’ Day celebration, describing them as the life force of our nation.
