May Day, (1st of may) is a Special Day set aside by Nigerian Government to appreciate workers across the states of the Federation for their contributions to nation building but regrettedly, NIGERIANs are apprehensive about the high level of insecurity and continuous high cost of market commodities and petroleum products in the country, saying that workers have nothing to celebrate.

The labour groups, NLC, TUC and ULC have designated the day for roadwork and special broadcast which follows with approved events like novelty football match to show solidarity to NIGERIAN workers as gathered by 9News Nigeria.

Our correspodent reports that the goverment on their part is expected to promote NIGERIAN worker’s day through relevant agencies and to show conformity to speedy consideration and approval of the plights of workers inline with the laws of the Federation.

On this therefore, the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan sends his best wishes to the Nigerian workers on the occasion of this year’s May Day.

In a release signed by Ola Awoniyi, Special Adviser (Media) to President of the Senate and made available to 9News Nigeria, Lawan celebrates the workers for their immense contributions to the development of the nation.

In his words, “Nigerian workers deserve our appreciations and respects for their contributions to the development of our country.

“I also salute them for their patriotic cooperation with the government and and other institutions in the collective efforts to address societal challenges.

“There is no gainsaying the fact that Labour creates wealth for the nation, the more reason that the welfare of the Nigerian workers should always be accorded priority.

“As Parliament, the National Assembly will continue to partner with the Organised Labour in addressing issues that affect workers and the generality of the Nigerian people.

“Despite the prevailing challenges, the relationship between Labour and the Government should be cooperative in the overall interest of the country.

“In the spirit of May Day, I appeal for a speedy and amicable resolution of the ongoing negotiations between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) to ensure that our universities reopen for learning and research.

“We should always be mindful that no society can make meaningful progress without industrial peace and harmony.

“Once again, I say congratulations to all Nigerian workers and wish them a happy May Day,” Lawan says.

In the contrary, sources close to the Government revealed that the country is facing alot of annihilations and HardTimes and therefore request NIGERIAN government to fix the country to save the masses.

The sources however Condemned the high level of insecurity and high cost of market commodities and petroleum products while charging the Senate President to approve good bills to save the situation than mere Celebration of Nigerian Workers On May Day Against All Odds Facing The Country.

This indeed has caused series of reactions as to go ahead with the MAYDAY Celebration or to jettison and postpone it’s activities pending the assurance of Government to security issues.

Meanwhile, amidst Insecurity and Continued tension on the land where blood are shed on daily basis, how are NIGERIAN workers celebrating?
