The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus has described Nigerian workers as victims of “unfortunate misrule” by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government.
In a statement by his Media aide, Ike Abonyi, to felicitate with Nigerian workers as the world marked the International Labour Day, Secondus commended the age-long sacrifice of Nigerian workers towards the growth of the nation.
He said not minding the ongoing stress in the world as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, that Nigerian health workers and other essential workers had been in the frontline taking most risks with little or no rewards.
“It’s unfortunate that the coming of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has further worsened the plight of workers because of their inept approach to the economic challenges of the country,” he said.
Secondus went further to say that the APC government has damaged the economy with numerous actions of harassment and intimidation that successfully scared away investors and critical players whose contributions would have been very impactful.
He added, “The workers and the poor in our society remain vulnerable victims of this unfortunate misrule, a situation that calls for all hands to be on deck as the nation struggles to scale the hurdle of APC.”
The PDP chairman, then called on the workers to remain “resolute and prayerful for God to bring light at the end of the APC tunnel.”
