Ahmed Aledeh, secretary of Medical and Health Workers’ Union of Nigeria, says the union is recommitting itself to the fight for fair wages and better welfare for staff of NAFDAC.
Aledeh said this in a statement issued to mark Worker’s Day on Monday.
He said: “On this special day, we honor and pay tribute to all the Nigerian workers whose hard work, dedication and commitment continue to drive our economy and shape our society.
“From the farmers who grow our food to the doctors and nurses who take care of us when we’re sick, from the teachers who educate our children to the construction workers who build our roads and homes, we owe a debt of gratitude to all the workers who make our world a better place.
“We especially celebrate the numerous achievements of the NAFDAC workforce and their effective contribution to safeguarding the health of Nigerians.
“We stand in solidarity with you, and take this opportunity to recommit ourselves to the fight for fair wages, safe working conditions, and dignity on the job, which are the rights of every member of the NAFDAC workforce.
“On behalf of the Union leadership, I wish you a Happy Workers Day 2023!”
