As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to commemorate the 2023 Workers’ Day, Miss Face of Humanity Nigeria (MFOH Nigeria) has tasked stakeholders to ensure that human rights principles are mainstreamed into labour practices in various workplaces and amongst labour unions across the country.
MFOH Nigeria’s Amb. Rita Chika Ezenwa, who made this call on Monday in an advocacy message celebrating this year’s workers’ day also known as International Labour Day observed that mainstreaming human rights in the operations of MDAs as well as in the private sector will ensure a sustainable industrial harmony, improved productivity and efficient service delivery.
“It is in this connection that MFOH Nigeria has and will continue to engage different stakeholders to understand and appreciate the need to deploy and mainstream human rights principles and norms while carrying out their official duties”, MFOH Nigeria stated.
