Today is the International Workers Day also known as Labour Day
The day is set aside by the international labour movement to highlight the conditions, struggles, victories, hopes and aspirations of workers.
In Nigeria and other parts of the world, it is usually a public holiday and another opportunity by labour unions to table their demands and listen to speeches by their leaders and top government officials.
This year, workers in Nigeria are with the high hope for a better Nigeria as they await the new administration in less than a month.
Recall that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who was declared winner of the 2023 Presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will be sworn-in May 29, replacing outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari who has been in power since 2015.
Nigerian workers are expected to join the international community to commemorate the day with keynote speeches and a march at state capitals across the country.
