- In honor of this year’s Workers Day commemoration, the Federal Government has proclaimed Monday, May 1, a holiday. This was said in a statement made by Shuaib Belgore, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of the Interior.
The statement praised employees for their dedication, perseverance, and sacrifice, emphasizing that they were primarily to blame for Nigeria’s success and the respect it currently enjoys among other countries. “The end of work is productivity,” he said, urging employees to adopt the productivity culture. Productivity is what results in the satisfactory delivery of goods and services as well as the generation of wealth.
The minister exhorts workers to improve their craft in line with President Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s (retd) drive to modernize the means of government and ensure that every Nigerian receives the greatest possible benefit from the country.
The minister praised all security services for their accomplishments in the fight against crime nationwide and urged them to continue using all available resources to thwart criminals whenever they reared their heads.
