Don’t be disheartened by Nigeria’s economic, political challenges – Peter Obi tells workers

Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election, has called on workers to hold on to values that encourage productivity.

Obi urged workers to see their jobs as channels for contributing to nation-building, adding that Nigeria is blessed with a hardworking workforce.

He encouraged the workers not to be weary as a result of the economic and political challenges in the country.

The former Anambra governor spoke on Monday in commemoration of Workers’ Day.

“I congratulate Nigerian workers on the occasion of the Workers’ Day Celebration. I called on them to hold onto the values that encourage productivity in the nation,” Obi wrote on his Twitter page.

“I encouraged them to see their jobs as channels for contributing to nation-building. Nigeria is gifted with a hardworking workforce, desirous of the country’s development, and without minding poor workers’ welfare in the nation, the workers have continued to labour for the nation.

“I encouraged the workers not to be disheartened by the many challenges that pervade the economic and political space of the nation today, as everyone should remain focused on building a more productive and prosperous nation, which are part of the offerings of the New Nigeria.

“I want to assure you that the forces of darkness that have held this nation bound for long will not continue to have their way. We are determined to take back our nation for good and we are not giving up. I urge you all to remain steadfast.”

Obi noted that the “sun of justice, peace and development will soon shine” on Nigeria.
