As workers in Nigeria join their colleagues in the rest of the world to celebrate Workers Day, Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika has heartily congratulated workers in the sector for their daily contributions to the running and development of the industry. 

According to the Minister, the lofty achievements recorded in a the nation’s aviation sector wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment and personal sacrifices of employees in the different segments of the industry. 

He particularly ascribed the near total achievement of the aviation roadmap to the understanding and cooperation of the workers and hoped that the remaining parts will be achieved within the short period before the handover to the incoming administration. 

According to a statement made available to Glonat Newsonline on Monday, signed by the Special Assistant to the Minister of Aviation, James Odaudu, PhD, the minister restated the commitment of the Buhari administration to the continued improvement of the welfare of aviation workers through regular trainings, enhanced pay packages, provision of working tools and conducive work environments. 

“He further assures workers of his commitment to ensuring the implementation of the respective Conditions of Service of the agencies under the Ministry’s supervision and payment of the minimum wages as agreed with the Labour unions.

“Sirika however expresses concern over the frequency of workers strikes in the industry which, more often than not, disrupt operations at the nation’s airports and which send wrong signals to the outside world about the safety of Nigeria’s airspace. 

“The Minister wishes all workers in the aviation sector a wonderful celebration,” the statement read in part.
