The minister congratulated workers across the country on their celebration.
He also commended them for their hard work, diligence and sacrifice, saying that their efforts were largely responsible for the greatness of the country and the respect Nigeria now commanded in the comity of nations.
“Labour is the very essence of humanity. We are alive because we work and only the dead is incapable of working.”
Aregbesola, therefore, enjoined them to imbibe the culture of productivity, adding that the end of work was productivity.
“It is productivity that leads to satisfactory provision of goods and services and wealth creation.
“It is, therefore, the path to national and individual prosperity.”
He, however, urged them to raise the bar of their trade in line with the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration’s drive to rev up the vehicle of governance and make all the people of Nigeria derive maximum benefit.
The minister also congratulated all Muslims for the successful completion of the Holy month of Ramadan
Mr Aregbesola called on all Muslims to imbibe and practice the virtues of kindness, love, tolerance, peace, self-denial, sacrifice and good neighbourliness, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad.
“The self-restrain, self-denial, sacrifice and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period should not end but be maintained and improved upon, to be a better person and true worshipper.”
