By Emmanuel Obisue

The Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan has promised civil servants that the Federal Government is working to implement and sustain policies that will improve their welfare.

This assurance was conveyed in her message to civil servants on this year’s occasion of International Workers Day.

“Nigeria joins the rest of the world to commemorate this year’s International Workers’ Day, I celebrate all Nigerian Workers including all Civil Servants in the country. It is instructive to note that no nation can successfully aspire to attain greatness and prosperity without the invaluable contributions of its workers in all sectors.

“I profoundly appreciate the patriotism, sacrifice, dedication and industry demonstrated by all civil servants and workers in the country notwithstanding the current economic realities. No doubt, the great work you do, has translated to the numerous achievements recorded by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Administration.

“I wish to also reiterate the government’s commitment to implement and sustain policies and programmes put in place for the welfare of civil servants, as well as to create an enabling environment for them to be more productive and deliver quality services to Nigerians.

“You are indeed our most valued assets. Happy International Workers’ Day,” her message read.
