He lauded the sterling qualities that stood out to the Nigerian worker, saying that a Nigerian worker is known for his patriotism, hard work, resilience, and dedication to duty.

He said, “I am happy to be associated with the Nigerian worker in the last 25 years, and I can attest to the fact that everywhere you go, the Nigerian worker’s spirit resonates profoundly.”

Akpabio vowed that the National Assembly under his leadership was more than committed to ensuring the best working conditions for the workers.

“No Nigerian worker will again be allowed to work under inhuman conditions; we will do everything to give you the best because you deserve the best.”

The senate president said the 10th National Assembly was fully committed to providing the required laws aimed at protecting the interest of the Nigerian worker by creating a befitting working environment and reasonable pay that takes them home.

He said, “On behalf of the Senate and the entire National Assembly and, indeed, my family, I wish to join the world in wishing the Nigerian worker a happy International Labour Day.”

He said, “We are celebrating patriotism, hard work, commitment and dedication exhibited by the Nigerian workers.

” I want to assure you that your sacrifices will never be in vain; the tough times will not last forever; in fact, the challenges will soon be over.”(NAN)
