The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Rep. Kingsley Chinda (PDP, Rivers) has commended Nigerian workers for their immense contributions towards the growth and development of the nation.

The Minority Leader stated this in a press release signed by himself on Wednesday evening reiterating his unwavering solidarity for the Nigerian workers.

According to him, “Fellow compatriots, today, as we celebrate the resilience and contributions of Nigerian workers, the backbone of our nation’s development, we stand in unwavering solidarity with Nigerian workers across all sectors and facets, while acknowledging their tireless efforts and sacrifices.

“Doubtless, today is a poignant reminder of the invaluable contributions of workers to our nation’s growth and prosperity. 

“As we mark this Workers’ Day, and honour the contributions of workers, let us recognise the challenges faced by workers, including poor working conditions, inadequate remuneration, and erosion of workers’ rights, reaffirm our collective responsibility to advocate for a fairer, more inclusive society where every worker is treated with dignity and respect.”

Chinda also said as the leader of minority parties he and his colleagues will ensure issues relating to workers’ welfare are addressed accordingly.

As the Leader of the Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives, we reiterate the commitments of my colleagues in the Minority Parties of the House of Representatives to address these issues through legislative actions and advocacy. The Minority Leadership resolves not only to reflect on the pressing issues facing the Nigerian workforce but to act on and prioritise the welfare and rights of workers, just as we have commenced the drive for a living wage for Nigerian workers against the minimum wage offered by the government.

“We urge the government to prioritise policies that promote decent work, social protection, and fair labour standards. We demand an end to the exploitation of workers and the promotion of equal opportunities for all.

“The resilience, dedication, and sacrifices of Nigerian workers cannot be overstated. 

“To the workers, we say thank you for your dedication and hard work. Your labour builds our nation, and we honour your contributions.

“Again, we call on the government to urgently consider a living wage for the Nigerian worker and commence implementation with the same speed that she implements an increase in taxes or tariffs on the populace.”
