Meanwhile, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities has raised the alarm over the exclusion of its members from the 40% pay rise for civil servants in the country. The union also decried the failure of the government to release the salaries of its members which were withheld during the four-month strike period it engaged in during the year 2022. In a goodwill message to commemorate the celebrations, the national president of SSANU who doubles as the national internal auditor for the Nigeria Labour Congress, Muhammed Ibrahim, noted that workers were determined to contribute positively to the “building of a great country”.Labour Day, also known as International Workers’ Day, is celebrated on May 1 every year to honour the working class across the world. It is celebrated as a national public holiday in many countries. The history of Labour Day goes back to 1886 when a Labour Union in the United States decided to go on strike with the sole demand that workers should not be allowed to work over eight hours a day.
