Omo-Agege orders arrest of security agent who shot anti-lockdown protesters in Sapele, calls for calm

The Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege has praised Nigerian workers saying they deserve to be celebrated for their resilience despite the very challenging times they all face today in Nigeria.

In a May Day statement, the DSP acknowledged Nigerian workers’ roles since the pro-independence struggles to date.

Noting how profoundly things are changing across the world as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Senator Omo-Agege advised retiring workers with entrepreneurial capabilities to join others in exploring the possibilities of starting businesses.

He said businesses can be initiated through the Central Bank of Nigeria’s N50 billion Agri-Business/Small and Medium Enterprise Investment Scheme (AGSMEISS) loans and those being offered by the Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending
(NIRSAL).

“Few come close to the resilient spirit of Nigerian workers whose struggles, toils and sweat have contributed in no small way towards the building of this nation.

“The malevolent coronavirus pandemic has brought down nations and their economies, with serious negative implications for businesses and statistics on inflation and employment rates.

“Across the world today, many workers can no longer work because of this pandemic, many workers are trudging on heroically and indeed, many workers in the health and other sectors are working assiduously towards saving Nigeria from the ravaging effect of this global problem.

“Today, I salute Nigerian workers and wish you all a Happy Workers’ Day!” he stated.
