Workers Day: These civil servants are 'malnourished' under the Buhari administration

The Buhari-led administration has no doubt failed anyone who had their hopes high on the success of it before he came into office in 2015. Prior to him winning the polls in 2015 and retaining the office in the alleged flawed general election four years later, Nigerians have seen their country move from bad to worse.

The is not say the opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP) led by President Goodluck Jonathan and Olusegun Obasanjo before him did a better job of managing the frustrations of Nigerians but the current president has basically picked the baton and has constantly retrogressed in all aspects of the economy and managing the country.

Nigeria has been marred and defaced under President Buhari. Daily we witness daily light corruption at all levels; pure nepotism at all levels of governance; constant neglect of the rising insecurity challenges in the country; his shielding of high-ranking officials formerly aligned with terror groups and neglect of the voices of Nigerians who only want to be heard.

While his failures continue to grow by the minute, one cannot ignore his administration's constant neglect for men and women of the civil service. This group of people who are often tagged as the engine of government is often maltreated.

As the globe marks Workers Day, we cast the spotlight on certain groups of people who have been paid less attention to than they deserve.

1. Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUJ)
2. Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN)
3. Nigerian Civil Servants under the aegis of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
4. The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD)
