Today, the first day of May 2020 is workers day. It remains worker’s day although a lot of workers all over the world are presently not working. For us here in Nigeria, May 1st is usually a public holiday, with or without covid-19.
But in the public holidays that come with May 1st every year, our health workers, security operatives and many other essential service providers are always on their duty posts. Unwaveringly serving the human populace with their strength enhanced by feeling of dignity inherent in labour.
In this current pandemic, a lot of our health workers have paid the ultimate price of having to sacrifice their own lives while trying to save the lives of others. No need saying that the pandemic has indeed dealt a devastating blow on almost everybody in one way or the other especially economically but the sacrifice of health workers and other essential service providers are worth commendable as it is top most.
It is in that light that I join in solidarity with them today and say with all sense of conviction that this year’s workers day belongs to them.
Happy workers day my able comrades.
