Delta workers lauded on May Day

02 May 2016, 18:31

Abuja - The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Monday Igbuya, has paid tribute to workers for their contributions to the country’s economic development.

In a message coinciding with Workers’ Day, he said the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Oowa would complement workers’ efforts by promoting investment and paying salaries timely.

“This administration is labour friendly. Workers will continue to receive recognition and encouragement,” Igbuya assured.

“The place of labour will continue to be side by side with the political actors and not one degree lower. The House of Assembly will give the fullest support and protection to workers’ rights,” he added.

He urged the workers to support the administration of Okowa.

“The future of Delta State is not just in the hands of the government. It is in the hands of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN).

It is in the hands of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC). It is in the hands of Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC).”

Igbuya however conceded revenue was still too low to meet salary demands by some workers but promised to tackle these grievances.

“With your help, we can weed out ghost workers and ghost pensioners and end the stealing and wastage of public resources,” he said.
