On the occasion of International Workers’ Day commemoration, Lagos workers, on Saturday, reaped a bumper harvest of welfare packages - thanks to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Mr Governor approved 10 hectares of land in Idera, Ibeju Lekki, and Badagry for workers housing schemes.

Sanwo-Olu handed over the title documents to  chairmen of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) at an elaborate event organised to commemorate Workers’ Day.

The event, with the theme: “COVID-19 Pandemic, Social and Economic Crises: Challenges for Jobs, Social Protection and Peoples’ Welfare”, was held at Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan in the heart of Lagos.

The two housing schemes will be built by the labour unions with funds from Federal Mortgage Bank. The Ministry of Housing will supervise the project. Also, the labour unions will now have a befitting secretariat to aid their operations, the Governor said.

The secretariat, Sanwo-Olu promised, will be ready before next year’s May Day. There was applause as Sanwo-Olu announced the package. He was hailed as “the best worker friendly Governor”.
