Lagos - The Radio, Television and Theatre Arts Workers Union of Nigeria (RATTAWU) has advised the incoming administration of Muhammadu Buhari to ensure strict compliance with its campaign promises.
Dare Durosimi, the Chairman of Lagos State Council of RATTAWU, gave the advice in an interview in Lagos.
He said that that Nigerians would support the new dispensation if it would listen to the voice of the people.
According to him, the Buhari-led government cannot afford to live below board as expectations of the electorate are high.
"The incoming government will be expected to live up to expectations of Nigerians as any attempt to derail from the expectations will not augur well with the masses.
"By electing the new government, the Nigerian public has entered into a social contract with the state the tenet of which must be adhered to.

"The assurances we are giving to the president-elect is that so far he listens to the voice of the people, we will work with him," the unionist said.
According to him, the principle of the common good should be the cardinal objective of the incoming administration because without the people, there will be no government.
Durosimi advised that the new government should shun all steps that could dash the optimism Nigerians reposed on the 'progressive' administration.
On salary increment, he said: "as a union in Lagos, we are talking about reviewing our salary because ordinarily in Lagos State, the salary was due to be reviewed as at last year.
"We are looking up to the new administration to look into this as part of its human capital development."
