Workers back Kwara governor for re-election

05 November 2014, 12:03

Kwara - Workers in Kwara State have endorsed the State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, for a second term in office.

The endorsement came after an interactive session between the governor and senior civil servants in the State.

The Chairman of the Trade Union Congress in Kwara State, Kola Olumoh, said in view of the outstanding performances of the governor, and being the only aspirant who has presented himself to the civil service, the governor truly deserved their support.

He added that Ahmed should not forget his promise that his second term would usher in an upward review of the welfare of civil servants.

Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Umar Farouk Akanbi, urged the governor to resolve some issues of concern to workers, especially those who bought Zenith Bank shares some years back but had not received their shares certificate.

He commended the state government on its workers’ friendly programmes and policies, such as the absorption of 50 disengaged staff of the Fadama programme in the state.

The governor directed the Head of Service, Mohammed Dabarako to compile the list of the affected civil servants in order to resolve the issue promptly.

He assured servant and other public sector workers in the state that their salaries would be paid promptly despite the drastic shortfall in the monthly Federation Account Allocation to the state.
