"It is not a mistake that May 1 is dedicated to workers. In Nigeria, everyone understands the sacrifices made by the country's workers for the day-to-day existence of the population. "These sacrifices come in different ways including in the form of hopes, dreams and prayers for a better country. To say these hopes have helped us positively in our journey so far is to say the least. "I sincerely want to thank our workers at the Lagos State House of Assembly, those in the state's civil service and in Nigeria for their individual and collective contributions to the success of the legislative arm of government and the country. "Today in Lagos, we are rated above the common standards of excellence but this is because of the efforts and contributions of our workers, not just to sustain the tempo, but to add that extra to their jobs. "While I congratulate our workers both in Lagos State and in Nigeria, I urge them to continue to keep being optimistic that the future of our expectations will happen in our lifetime," Obasa said in the statement.
