Obi called on workers to hold onto those values that encourage productivity in the nation and urged them to remain steadfast.
In his message to workers, Obi admonished Nigerian workers to see their jobs as channels for contributing to nation-building. He explained that the nation would grow and develop more if Nigerians understood that the task of nation-building was for everyone.
He noted that Nigeria is gifted with a hardworking workforce, desirous of the country’s development. He saluted workers for continuing to labour for the nation not minding the poor workers’ welfare condition in the nation.
While encouraging workers not to be disheartened by the many challenges that, according to him, pervade the economic and political space of the nation, Obi urged everyone to remain focused on building a more productive and prosperous nation, which, he said, was 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. The sun of justice, peace, and development will soon shine on our nation,” Obi concluded.
