Abuja - The Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service, Technical and Recreational Services Employees (AUPCTRE) has commended Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, for enhancing the welfare of workers in the state.
National President of the Union Solomon Adelegan gave the commendation during a courtesy visit to the Governor in Government House Benin City.
Adelegan expressed gladness on how the governor was handling the workers’ welfare in the state.
“Five, six years ago, we knew how Benin City used to be and how you have transformed it. We are glad with the way you have been handling workers’ welfare in Edo state, not only that, the Chairman of the NLC tells us how you have been giving the union your support. The story of the NLC will not be complete without the name of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole written in capital letters,” he said.
He also appreciated the governor for appointing former General Secretary of the union as a commissioner in the state.
“For the first time in the history of this country, a former president of the NLC is assuming executive position as Governor, not only that, we took statistics state by state and the highest position given to a unionist is maybe Special Adviser, but in Edo State, a former General-Secretary is made a commissioner.”
Governor Oshiomhole charged the organized labour to remain focused to realize its objective.
“Labour movement must remain as a school to produce leaders. Government will come and go but the labour movement will forever remain”.
He congratulated Adelegan on his victory in the union’s election last year and assured the union executives of his support.
“I remain grateful for the support so far received from the labour movement in the state. Labour remains my primary constituency and I’m proud of it.”
