“Any disregard of this deployment shall be treated in accordance with the provision of PSR 030301(b),” the circular stated.

The affected staff have been redeployed to the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (OHSOF) and some designated ministries.

Meanwhile, The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, has described President Muhammadu Buhari as “the most labour-friendly president,” saying he signed the minimum wage bill into law and doused Labour’s restiveness occasioned by unpaid salaries.

He commended what he described as the resilience of Nigerian workers and their contributions to national development, noting that Buhari has been able to address the agitations of the workforce through provision of bailout funds to state government for the payment of salaries.

The minister said in a statement he signed on Tuesday that the theme of this year’s May Day celebration aligns with the vision of Buhari’s administration to improve workers’ welfare and build a buoyant economy capable of creating abundance for the people.

Ngige said, “I wish to send warm felicitations to the Nigerian workers on the occasion of 2019 Workers’ Day.

“The theme of this year’s celebration, which is, Another 100 years of struggle for jobs, dignity and social justice in Nigeria, aligns with the vision and efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari to not only uplift the lots of the Nigerian worker, but to also leave a legacy of a buoyant economy capable of creating a sustainable abundance for our people.

“The uniqueness of this year’s event manifests eventfully in its co-incidence with the centenary celebration of the International Labour Organisation, which Nigeria proudly pioneered as the first Country Office in Africa 60 years ago.
