IMPLICATIONS ON NIGERIAN WORKERS AND ECONOMY
The corona virus pandemic is shaking the world. Many businesses have been sunk by it and millions of people have lost their jobs as a result. Obviously, we might say nobody saw it coming, as governments of nations were caught unaware by the virus. Countries hurriedly constructed isolation centres where victims were treated, but the virus kept spreading and proved difficult to contain. Governments were forced to resort to placing travel ban and move restrictions, workers were advised to work from home, schools were shutdown, religious gatherings were prohibited and everyone was advised to maintain physical distancing, essential service providers were only permitted to move but on strict observance to COVID-19 guidelines. It was in the middle of this unpredictability that The Nigerian Workforce Strategy and Enlightenment Centre (NIWOSEC) organized a virtual workers dialogue in commemoration of May 1st, 2020, Workers Day celebration. Workers around the nation converged online to dialogue on the “Implications of COVID-19 on Nigerian Workers and Economy.” This book is, therefore, a compendium of workplace situation before the pandemic, during the pandemic, government response, challenges of workers and suggestions against any future re-occurrence.
