Makarfi made the call in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja by Mr Dayo Adeyeye, the National Publicity Secretary, PDP National Caretaker Committee, to mark 2017 workers day.

He also called on government to consider incentives that would promote workers welfare.

“We call on the Federal and States Government across the Country to prioritise with despatch, the welfare of workers at all levels.

“A situation where some states cannot pay salaries of its workers is unacceptable.

“We urge the Federal Government to also consider other palliatives or incentives to reduce the suffering of Nigeria workers,” Makarfi said.
