May Day: PDP urges Nigerians to resist anti-democratic forces

As Nigerians joined the rest of the world to celebrate this year’s Workers’ Day, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged them to reinforce their resistance against anti-democratic forces seeking to take control of the nation.

The PDP commended Nigerian workers for their resilience, loyalty and patriotism in serving the fatherland despite the humiliating, suffocating and somersaulting anti-people economic policies of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which have brought untold life-discounting experiences to Nigerians in the last eight years.

PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, said that the deliberate suppression of the rights, well-being and opportunities of Nigerian workers reflects the ugly reality of the inhumanity, insensitivity and callousness of the APC administration which relishes in inflicting pain and suffering on citizens.

The PDP noted that many Nigerians, especially workers are hurting over the outcome of the February 25, 2023 Presidential election which was characterized by multiple violations, manipulations, alteration of genuine election results and brazen subversion of the Will of the people.


The party charged Nigerian workers to use their strength and pivotal position in the country to protect and defend the nation’s constitutional democracy from political manipulators, who are desperate to dash the hope of Nigerians for a credible democratic leadership.

The PDP continues to recognize the devotion of Nigerian workers as real drivers of national life, particularly in voting en masse for the Party and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, at the 2023 Presidential election, while assuring that it will not relent in its effort to retrieve the mandate at the Tribunal so that the nation can have a breath of fresh air which has eluded her in the last eight years.

The PDP therefore urged Nigerian workers and indeed all citizens not to resign to despondency but remain optimistic in the hope that the judiciary will right the wrong meted on the nation so that Nigeria can return to the path of peace, political stability and economic prosperity.

“Our Party again salutes Nigerian workers and wishes them a happy Workers’ Day celebration,” PDP said.
