President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has lamented the hardship being suffered by the Nigerian workers, even as he commended them for their sacrifices.

In his May Day message on Friday, Buhari assured the workers that his administration would focus on boosting their morale in order to increase productivity and income.

The President-elect noted that the workers’ hardship had been worsened by years of poor governance and corruption, promising that his administration would make things better.

He expressed sadness at the irony of Nigeria’s oil wealth, characterised with rising poverty, while a few corrupt officials were making themselves very rich at the expense of people’s wealth.
