A Sad Time To Be A Nigerian Worker.

23

1/5/21 Every May 1st, ranking government officials come out like peacocks to mount a colourful podium and make fine speeches on how they intended to improve the standard of workers, and in the end they would return to their aloofness and unsympathetic proclivity towards workers welfares. Both public and private sector workers are groaning under hardships and how skewed their source of livelihoods has taken to the worst. The current insecurity with its grappling effects on the economy, has seared a big hole through any alternate economic developmental plans these workers have going for them. Nobody can conveniently assure him or herself that safety is guaranteed, yet unbridled corruption from ranking officials seems not to abate, but monstrously challenging worker's willpower to survive and to continue contributing to the socioeconomic balance through their various job descriptions. “A school teacher who can no longer go to place of assignment due to the activities of bandits kidnapping people at will, and also cannot make it to farm because armed herdsmen are camped nearby,” is a perfect example of how precarious our societal empowering mechanisms has degenerated. We expect to hear and see all the usual sweet talks and melodrama on the improvement of workers welfares before dusk today, but a quick reminder to both passive and active enablers of these hopeless tangles and predicaments, is that their will would not continue to supercede above the collective resolve of the populace. No and Never. Happy Workers Day. Edozie Maduagwu, Public Affairs Analyst.
