Easter: Osun NLC Chairman, Arapasopo Rejoices With Workers, Christians

The Osun State NLC Chairman, Comrade (Dr.) Christopher Abimbola Arapasopo, has taken the opportunity of the Easter celebration to extend his warmest greetings and well-wishes to the Christian community in the state and Osun workers.

Comrade Arapasopo emphasized the significance of Easter as a time for reflection, renewal, and spreading love, urges the workers to imbibe the virtues of Easter by manifesting the spirit of love through forgiveness, sacrifice, hope, and sincerity in whatever they do.

“Today we remember, we celebrate, and we believe that Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, has conquered sin and death through his faithfulness and resurrection.”

The NLC Chairman said he owes it not only as a moral obligation to continually remind the government of her duties and obligations to the people, but also to sensitize the people of their rights.

He noted: “At a time like this, when the Nigerian Workers are facing a lot of overwhelming challenges, the angel’s startling announcement “He has risen” calms our troubled souls, mends our brokenness, gives us inner peace, and strengthens our faith.

He said the Nigeria Labour Congress, Osun State Council has been working and will not relent in its mandate to promote, defend, and advance the economic, political, and social rights as well as the wellbeing of Nigerian workers and pensioners.

“The NLC Chairman wishes to express gratitude to the Governor of Osun State, Senator (Dr.) Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke, for his concern for workers’ welfare packages in the State. He also advised that the Governor should continue with the good gesture towards workers and the entire populace. In particular, he calls on the State Government to promptly implement the New Living Wage if and when it is announced by the Federal Government.

The Chairman also wishes to inform the workers that the organized Labour Movement has been in discussions with the State Government on how to further improve the lives of Osun Workers and Pensioners and it promises to share more details as the arrangements are put in place and finalized.

He added that the Organized Labour has engaged the government on the need to resuscitate the Motor Vehicle Refurbishing Loan and Housing Loan. This should also come with long-term repayment tenure and reasonable administrative charges. If this is done, it will not only bring comfort but also go a very long way in easing the financial tension and burden on Workers. It will also enhance their productivity.
The flexible eligibility requirement of Osun State Motor Vehicle Refurbishing Loan beats the conditions of any bank loan, any day and time.

“May the hope of the risen Christ’s loving presence and healing love continue to be our hopes and commitment during these difficult times, and may the eternal flame of His love continue to radiate in us and through us.

“Happy Ester!”

Comrade (Dr.) Christopher Abimbola Arapasopo
