The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged workers to use their resilient spirit to resist all anti-people tendencies that seek to compromise and undermine the democratic tenets of freedom, Rule of Law, accountability and probity in the country.
The national publicity secretary of PDP, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, who said this in a statement congratulating Nigerian workers on this Year’s International Workers’ Day, however hailed Nigerian workers for remaining steadfast as real drivers of the national economy despite the asphyxiating and life-discounting conditions occasioned by the ill-implemented economic and fiscal policies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
He said “Our Party is deeply distraught that Nigerian workers and indeed millions of other citizens have, in the last nine years been subjected to misery, harrowing economic hardship and worsening insecurity by the rudderless and insensitive APC administrations, which have wrecked the nation’s productive sectors and brought distress to our national life.”
According to the statement, PDP, particularly, condemned the continuing increase in electricity tariff and price of petroleum products with petrol now selling at over N1000 per liter in various parts of the country; a situation that has resulted in astronomical increase in the cost of living and worsened the economic hardship in the country.
“As the Party of the people, the PDP demands that the APC-led Federal Government ends its insensitivity towards Nigerians and use the occasion of the Workers’ Day to review all its retrogressive policies and take urgent action towards addressing issues that have direct bearing to the welfare of the citizens.”
The PDP however urged Nigerian workers and indeed all citizens not to give up hope but remain steadfast in their commitment towards a stable, united and prosperous nation, especially at this challenging time.
“The Party celebrates the workers and wishes them a happy Workers’ Day celebration,” the statement added.
