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.
