May Day: PDP Calls For Better Package For Workers

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun, Prince Dotun Babayemi, has called for improved welfare package for workers to motivate them to perform optimally.

Babayemi made the call in Osogbo on Sunday in a solidarity message to Nigerian workers as they celebrate this year’s Workers’ Day.

He equally called on the government to put in place enduring mechanisms that would make life more bearable for the Nigerian workers before their retirement.

Babayemi, a former PDP governorship aspirant in the state, canvassed for a more attractive working conditions that would stimulate economic growth and discourage brain drain.

He urged government to put in place permanent solution to the recurring issue of non-payment of pensions and gratuities of retirees.

“Government should provide enhanced packages to the workers that will go beyond the monthly salaries.

”It is wickedness to owe salaries and equally ungodly not to pay pensioners their entitlements as and when due. It is sheer wickedness.

“Our workers and retirees deserve to be treated fairly by the system by putting in place and in concrete terms too, policies and programmes that will make life meaningful and enduring for them during and after service,” he said.

Babayemi noted that the prompt payment of serving and retired workers would stem the prevalent greed and corruption entrenched in the system.

According to him, if the government can sincerely see to workers’ welfare by not focusing on salary increase alone, the factors which normally engineer corruption would be reduced.

Babayemi urged the government to do more in terms of improving the welfare of workers to extract dedication from them.
