Labor and Employment Minister Chris Ngige urged Nigerians to approach the New Year with a positive mindset and remain hopeful for a greater Nigeria.

The minister gave the advice in his new year address on Sunday in Abuja.

According to him, while the challenges facing Nigerians were daunting, they were not insurmountable, hence the need for everyone to approach the New Year with a positive mindset.

“As we celebrate the start of 2023, we must also look back on the past year, knowing that brighter days await us.

“Though our challenges are daunting, we must be brave and determined to rise up and meet them.

“It is this spirit that will keep us going until we reach the desired destination of a prosperous and generous Nigeria that our founding fathers fought for,” he added.

Ngige took the opportunity to thank Nigerian workers for supporting the regime of the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret.), and himself since 2015.

He said the administration had prioritized the well-being of the workers from the start and remained committed to them as it ends in five months.
