The leadership of our great Union first of all wishes to express our sympathy and solidarity to Nigerian working people as we empathize with them over the harrowing socio-economic situation of our dear Country. We know your pains as we share in them but at the same time, we salute your courage and indomitable spirit. You are indeed a rare gem of humankind.
Worker’s Day generally serves as a reminder of the significant role that workers play in the growth and development of our country. And we are very pleased and grateful that this day is another amazing opportunity to honour Nigerian workers for their unwavering commitment, professionalism, and sacrifices they make daily to keep various sectors of the economy running smoothly, including the petroleum and natural gas industry.
We profoundly and specifically salute the unwavering dedication, resilience, and indomitable spirit of Nigeria Oil and Gas Workers and the Nigerian working people generally in the face of various adversities besieging our nation.
This past year has been particularly challenging for all of us, as we navigated through the global economic fluctuations, and volatile market conditions. Despite these obstacles, you have shown extraordinary strength and commitment to fulfilling your duties and responsibilities.
The year 2024 was also ushered in by various unprecedented circumstances and hardships, including insecurity and inflation that has tested our collective strength and resilience.
However, through your unwavering dedication, tolerance and sacrifices, we shall surely navigate these obstacles and come out victorious in pursuit of socio-economic growth of our nation’s economy.
Once again, we commend all members of the Nigeria Oil and Gas Industry (Workers and Managements), for their tireless efforts to ensure efficient and sustainable supply of petroleum products to offices and factories, to keep the Wheels of our nation’s economy running and our homes/social places comfortable during these trying times. Your selflessness and sacrifices are true confirmation of your professionalism and dedication to the services of the people of Nigeria.
As we commemorate this Worker’s Day, let us strengthen our unity and solidarity, which underlines the essence of the labour movement. Together, we shall overcome one day!!
We extend our gratitude to the Government, our esteemed Partners/Stakeholders in the Industry, for their continuous support and collaboration. It is through these collective efforts that we can build a better Nigeria for all.
On behalf of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), we wish you all a joyous and rewarding Worker’s Day Celebration.
Our Solidarity remains Constant for the Union makes Us Strong!!
Happy 2024 Worker’s Day!
