The occasion of International Workers day is always a veritable moment to remind ourselves about the immense contribution of the labour force to the growth of Nations and civilizations, including ours. It is also an opportune moment of introspection on the timeless values of hard work, the dignity of labour; and the need for adequate attention to the rights and welfare of our workers by the government and all relevant stakeholders.

On the occasion of this year’s International Workers day celebration, the President of the Nigerian Bar Association on behalf of the Association celebrates the Nigerian Labour force, as well as Workers all over the world, while calling on the government to make more deliberate interventions in elevating the status of the average worker, by addressing all labour-related issues that have altogether impacted our national growth and productivity.

Happy May Day!!!

Dr. Rapulu Nduka
