2020 May day: Glo urges Nigerian workers not to despair

As Nigerian workers join their counterparts across the globe to celebrate May Day, digital transformation leader, Globacom, has urged them to persevere despite current challenges and the economic hardship caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, COVID-19.

The company made the call in a goodwill message sent to the  country’s labour force. It noted that the workers had over the years been strong pillars of nation-building, and encouraged them to continue to contribute their quota to the economic and social development of the country.

“As you join your counterparts across the world to celebrate yet another Workers’  Day, Globacom wishes to congratulate you for being undeterred by the challenges workers face all over the world.  We salute your courage, resilience,  and can-do attitude, and urge you to use the occasion to rededicate yourselves to the social and economic development of our dear nation”, Globacom said in the message.

It acknowledged that the pandemic had brought with it harsh economic challenges, and urged workers  to remain positive. The telecom operator added that they should tap into their legendary patience and perseverance to be able to overcome the challenges.

“As our Muslim brothers and sisters use the ongoing Ramadan to pray for global peace and an end to the pandemic along with the prayers of other religious groups, this difficult season will soon pass and life will return to normal”, Globacom prayed.

“We will continue to offer innovative and value-added products and services to support workers in the public and private sectors in delivering services to Nigerians in all spheres of life”, it concluded.
