Dr. Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, her stated why he believes Nigerian workers should applaud the President Muhammadu Buhari‘s administration.
The Minister revealed that Nigerian workers should applaud the President because the present government has done well in the area of their welfare.
While speaking on Channels Television, Ngige claimed that the present administration has shown concern for the welfare of workers in the current than the past government.
He stated that “Many people will not remember very quickly. In the military government, at a time, there was an embargo on employment; even embargo on promotions.
When people go, the vacancies are there and the monies are returned to the coffers of the government. We are not doing so and I thought Nigerian workers should be clapping for us for that.
We are promoting them (workers) as we speak; we are replacing those who have left. In fact, when people leave on high grades, we do what is called suppression and get more (people) on the lower grades. The Presidency doesn’t want anybody to be laid off; this President.”
He further stated that the President is concerned about the suffering of workers because he was once a military man.
