My dear Comrades and Compatriots,
I bring you warm and fraternal greetings on this auspicious occasion of the Worker’s day.
The Worker’s Day, which is an annual ritual that is popularly referred to as the ‘May Day’ has a long history and is a unique celebration for us and our teaming colleagues who have continued to sacrifice everything we have to ensure that the wheels of the economy is kept moving.
While it’s no longer news to mention the frustrations and denials we all go through in getting our earns meet, it’s proper to continue to remain resolute and resist all forms manipulations and denials of our Rights and Privileges by the powers that be.
For us in SSANU, we are currently at a crossroad, with an imaginary barrier erected between our Rights and the blockade we are facing in the pursuit of our legitimate earnings.
I therefore wish to humbly request for your continued support, cooperation and prayers for us to surmount this man made challenge(s).
Please do accept on behalf of my Family, NAC and NEC our highest regards and consideration as we continue to contribute our quota to this onerous task of nation building.
Once more, Happy Worker’s Day to you all.
