A member of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (SSAN), Ms. Akudo Genevieve Nwachukwu, says Nigerian workers need more motivation to buoy and sustain quality productivity in the public sector.
Speaking to journalists after the march past to commemorate the 2021 International Workers’ Day celebrations on 1st May, 2021 at Eagles’ Square, Abuja, she said she feels a sense of belonging to participate in the exercise and lauded the chairman of SSAN for effective coordination and mobilisation of members of the arm of the Nigeria Labour Congress to mark the historic event for workers.


The disability rights activist said there is the need for government to always reach accord with the labour movement in order to stabilise democracy, reduce acrimony in the system and jointly move the country forward in all ramifications.
Commenting on her new found project called the National Association for Disabled Persons (NADIP), the activist said the body is meant to give a voice to physically-challenged people in Nigeria. “We have latent potentialities, ideas and skills in our disabilities. Our physical appearance is no barrier to our performance in any way. We have the likes of Saturday Dobie, Parkins Uzor, Fidelis Ijeh, Steven Wonder, Cosmas Okoli, Gbenga Omotosho, Danladi Bako, and the rest that have made nonsense of their disabilities. We need deeper and stronger social inclusion from the three tiers of government and their agencies”, she added.


She observed that this year’s International Workers’ Day celebration was the best in terms of colour and organisation as well as for being rancour-free, despite the challenges posed by the Corona Virus pandemic.


Akudo pleaded for priority attention to be given to workers’ welfare as only a production workforce can guarantee and sustain national productivity and economic prosperity in the country.
The employee of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment commended the ministry’s top leadership for implementing disability-friendly initiatives and policies that aid the performance of physically-challenged persons working with the ministry and at other MDAs in the country.
