We Can’t Get The Economy Right, Until We Look After Workers’ Welfare – Obi

“The topic of today is socioeconomic justice. When we talk about that, we talk about justice for all,” Obi told the workers who were gathered for the global annual event used to celebrate workers’ achievement.

“All we want is to build a country where Nigerians will be proud to say that they are Nigerians, a country where people will not be struggling to go out, a country where all of us workers will say they are working and happy.

“We can’t get the economy right, we can’t get anything right until the workers are working and they are being looked after — their welfare and everything — and they are productive. That is why we say we will move it from consumption to production.

He urged you the workers to “continue what you are doing, continue to be law-abiding” for a peaceful country, adding that Nigerians have no other country which he said citizens must build for their children.
