I Will Always Fight For You- Tinubu Tells Workers
President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu has declared that he is a co-labourer and friend to workers in the fight for social and economic justice.
He disclosed this in a statement released in commemoration of 2023 Workers Day. The former Lagos governor who promised to always fight for workers, stated that they will have “more than minimum wage”.
Tinubu said, “In me, you will find a dependable ally and co-labourer in the fight for social and economic justice for all Nigerians, including all the working people. Your fight will be my fight because I will always fight for you. My plans for better welfare and working conditions are clearly spelt out in my Renewed Hope Agenda for A Better Nigeria. It is a covenant born of conviction and one I am prepared to keep.’
Tinubu calls for better understanding and cooperation
In the statement, Tinubu extended a hand of friendship to ‘Nigerian workers through the two central Labour unions – Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress.”
The president-elect also reminded workers that they have a battle to fight. He said, “At this point, I must remind Nigerian workers that we all have a common battle to wage, one which we must win together. And it is the fight against poverty, ignorance, disease, disunity, ethnic and religious hate and all negative forces that contend against the stability and prosperity of our country.”
He further promised that workers would have more than a minimum wage. Tinubu said, “You will have a living wage to have a decent life and provide for your families.”
Speaking about the days that lie ahead, Tinubu said, “The days ahead will, however, demand better understanding and cooperation from all sides, because leadership will require that we take tough and hard decisions so that our people and all Nigerian workers can live more abundantly.”
