Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has urged workers not to lose faith in President Muhammadu Buhari to surmount the odds. The former Vice President also proposed a fairer deal for workers in order to reduce the frequency of strikes in the country, which he regrets takes a heavy toll on the economy. In his May Day message, the former Vice President said despite the challenges the country and its people are facing, it will take the support of everyone working in tandem with the Buhari administration to lift the economy out of the doldrums.
“President Buhari alone cannot turnaround the fortunes of the country. It requires everyone – elected and appointed officials, the legislature and the judiciary, the public and private sectors and ordinary Nigerians – working together in faith and commitment to bring about the desired change.”
Atiku A noted that Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade when combined with curbing wastage’s and profligacy would free much-needed resources to jump-start the economy by investing in infrastructure and high jobs yielding sectors especially agriculture as proposed by the government.
