‘Your Days Of Liberation Is Very Near’- Omisore To Osun Workers:

A former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore has declared that the ‘hours of liberation’ of workers in Osun State is ‘very near’.

Omisore, who lauded Nigerian workers for their “immense and consistent contributions to the development” of the country, stated this in a statement to mark this year’s Workers’ Day celebrations.

In the statement he personally signed and made available to DAILY POST on Monday, the former PDP governorship candidate in the state commended the workers for their patriotism and commitment, “despite the unsavoury situations many of them have had to endure in recent times as a result of the nation’s current economic turbulence.”

The ex-Chairman Senate Committee on Appropriation said “nothing else demonstrates our compatriots’ (the Nigerian workers) sense of patriotism in the decorous manner they have endured hardship in spite of the paltry remunerations they receive for their hard work.

“This sacrifice is not limited to the workers in the office of the president, governors, senators or in our ministries and organised private sector. It embraces the man in the street, who hawks the little sachet water that has sustained the lives of the citizenry.

“I salute your courage. I salute your conscientious spirit”.

Speaking on the plight of the workers of Osun State, the former deputy governor enjoined them to take heart as the hour of their liberation and the total liberation of the state is very near.

“We should continue to work for the progress of Osun State as you have always done. We should not succumb to despondency.

‘Osun State is our pride. God will liberate our state from the buccaneers from Lagos State,” he stated, advising them to be peaceful and law abiding as they about their businesses.

While giving his full support to the workers’ agitation for a review of the minimum wage, Omisore called on the Federal Government to ensure that Nigerian workers “are adequately renumerated as the current economic realities do not support the meagre salaries our workers are paid”, expressing optimism that Nigeria as a nation would get over its protracted economic challenges”.
