Lagos Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has cautioned both the public and private sectorsâ€™ workers on the negative impact of industrial unrest and warned that such could worsen the economic situation in the country.
Ambode spoke at the Agege stadium in Lagos as he joined workers to mark the 2017 May Day.
He said that incessant strikes would create chaos rather than solve the myriads of issues plaguing the national economy.
â€œI want to seize this opportunity to urge the organised labour to continue to show understanding while rightly insisting on due and just entitlements for their members.
â€œThis is because; any industrial unrest will compound the challenges of economic recession,â€™â€™ he said.
The governor said that his administration was aware of the need to deliver effective and efficient service to the people.
"To achieve this, officers of the Lagos State Public Service must be continually equipped with the necessary competencies and skills.
â€œOur government and other stakeholders in the management of our economy will continue to double their efforts and explore innovative means of addressing the economic recession.
â€œThis will make life abundant and worthwhile for the Nigerian workers who are the real engines of growth in our country,â€ Ambode said.
