Director-general of Michael Imoudu National Institute for Labour Studies (MINILS), Ilorin, Kwara State, Comrade Issa Aremu, has urged the organised labour in the country to support the Renewed Hope eight-point agenda of the administration of President Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
He praised President Tinubu for unveiling bold measures to curb official corruption as well as reduce the costs of governance.
He urged the organised labour to take cognisance of the fact that the Renewed Hope Agenda of Tinubu’s administration captures wealth generation, fighting graft and poverty eradication.
Aremu made the call on the sidelines of the occasion marking his birthday in Ilorin.
He said the agenda of President Tinubu dealing with food security; poverty eradication; growth, job creation; access to capital; inclusion; rule of law; and fighting corruption offer a framework for harmonious and “win-win” relationship between the government and organised labour.
He observed that after the 2023 election, it was time for governance, adding that trade unions are better positioned within the Renewed Hope Agenda to urgently mainstream decent jobs and living wages for Nigerian workers.
Aremu, who observed that the basic principle of unionism is representation of workers both at workplace and power houses such as the National Assembly, said MINILS would help to build the capacity of unions for the effective collective bargaining and grievance handling.
He emphasised the importance of labour education for industrial harmony and national development.
He disclosed that the management and staff of MINILS were poised to surpass the Ministry of Labour deliverable targets of the number of workers, employers and government officials to be impacted upon on conflict prevention in workplaces in 2024.
