Nigerian workers during the week joined their counterparts in the rest of the world to mark May Day, a day set aside by the United Nations to recognise the contributions of workers to global economic development.
Here in Nigeria, members of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, trooped out in their thousands for the traditional match past to celebrate the day. 
It was also an opportunity for the workers to air their grievances on government economic and social policies, including their welfare.
The event was almost marred by labour, who insisted that they will only listen to either   the President or Vice President. A major demand of labour from government is an improvement in the standard of living of workers and an upward review of the minimum wage for workers.
