Tinubu told the labor leaders that his record as a former governor of Lagos State, during which he rebuilt the state and propelled it to the fifth largest economy in Africa, speaks for itself.

He cited unemployment, a lack of a credit system that allows employees to own homes, poverty, educational obstacles, and the economy’s weak industrial basis as some of the concerns he will address as President.

“In my worldview, the government has a cardinal responsibility to work not only with business but also with labour to ensure that all constituent parts of our society are afforded their fair share of rewards without taking on undue hardship,” Tinubu said.

According to him, he has spent his entire life fighting the government for proper governance until being jailed and then pushed into exile.

The former Lagos governor described how he campaigned for democracy and went into exile at the height of the National Democratic Coalition movement against the country’s military regime.

He said, “As Organised Labour, you have been at the forefront of the worker’s rights movement in Nigeria, championing economic fairness and the welfare of the average person, the weak and the forgotten.

“You have also been involved in the struggle for democracy and political rights. Your collective efforts breathe life into the democratic rights and economic ideals enshrined in our constitution.

“I can speak fondly of your impact on our nation because of my personal history on the frontlines of the social justice movement.

“I may be running for president now, but I was not always in this position. Long before I started running for the presidency, I was running away from military dictators angered by my important role in protests against them and their efforts to vanquish our democratic aspirations.NYSC portal

“The defining moment of my public life came during Nigeria’s struggle for democracy and my membership in the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) movement.

“I have dedicated my entire being to that cause. I was detained and then forced into exile because I refused to accept anything less than a government based on the proposition that the will of the people is sovereign and should reign over armed might and imposition.JAMB portal

“I believe that those assembled here today share the same ideals of progressive and democratic good governance. I have spent my political life advocating for the rights and interests of ordinary Nigerians as you also do. We have long been fellow travellers on the same road. I hope that we shall continue as friends and brothers.”

The NLC President, while thanking Tinubu for his participation, delivered the workers’ charter of demands, which includes a complete battle on corruption.

Corruption, he claims, has nearly ruined Nigeria’s social and economic fabric in both the private and public sectors, and is one of the reasons the country is not achieving the needed progress.

“In Nigeria, our problem is a people problem and we must have a government that will prioritise the fight against corruption. This is a key demand for Labour. We also need a government that will make social and economic justice a priority,” he said.JAMB Result
