The Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives has congratulated workers in the country on the occasion of this year’s International Workers’ Day.

Femi Gbajabiamila said although the day is being marked quietly across the globe as a result of the lockdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, there is much to remember about the sacrifices made by Nigerian workers.

Mr. Gbajabiamila commended Nigerian workers for their commitment and dedication to work over the years, which he said has shaped the country tremendously.

The Speaker, however, charged them to be more productive, saying whatever has been achieved before now must be sustained and improved upon.
