The Federal Government has declared Tuesday, May 1, 2018, as a public holiday to celebrate the 2018 Workers’ Day.
The Minister of Interior, Lieutenant General Abdulrahman Dambazau (Rtd), announced this in a statement on Friday by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr M. Umar.
He congratulated Nigerian workers on their loyalty, strength of character, hard work, sacrifice and dedication to building a greater country.
General Dambazau appreciated the central role workers play in government activities and decisions, and for keeping faith with President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in its resolve to build a better Nigeria.
He, however, solicited the continuous support of the workers in government’s effort to re-position the economy and uphold the shared legacy of all Nigerians.
The Minister wished all Nigerian workers a successful May Day celebration.
