I am committed to improving employee well-being – Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has reaffirmed his government’s commitment to improving the welfare of all workers, noting the various relief programs including wage allocation and the upcoming minimum wage review.

President Tinubu expressed his strong belief that the managers of the national machinery deserve fair wages and better welfare, and that a worker deserves not just any reward, but a fair and proportionate wage.

According to the statement, he honored Nigerian workers “in all areas – from the administrative officer who ensures proper documentation and distribution of correspondence; the security guard who remains dutiful through all seasons; the teacher who secures the future of our nation by transmitting knowledge to the next generation; the doctor who works relentlessly to save precious lives, and for all the Nigerian workers who keep the candle burning.”

The president wished them happy May Day celebrations.
