Lagos - Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the Rivers State, Felix Obuah, has appealed to the Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations Civil Service, Technical and Recreational Services Employees(AUPCTRE) to complement government’s efforts to revive the economy.
Obuah made the appeal as he received a delegation of AUPCTRE in Port Harcourt.
He enjoined the leadership and members of AUPCTRE to oblige the new administration led by Governor Nyesom Wike their maximum and unflinching support in his efforts and determination to steer the state economy back on track with a view to easing the plight of workers in the state and the Rivers people in general.

Obuah said Wike had already commenced such initiatives by clearing the arrears of eight months salaries the immediate past government of Rotimi Amaechi reportedly owed to the Sharks and Dolphins Football Clubs, paid pensioners allowances owed as well as three months salary arrears to civil servants.
Wike’s administration has updated their monthly salaries up to June.
“All that is expected of you and indeed, all Rivers people, is your support, encouragement and prayers for Gov. Wike,” Obuah said.
Meanwhile, Obuah, who is also the Administrator of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency, expressed the PDP-led administration’s commitment to restoring the cleanliness of the Port Harcourt.
