Wike, most workers friendly gov —Obuah
As workers in Rivers State join their counterparts all over the world to celebrate Workers Day, the state Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr Felix Obuah, has urged workers in the state to remain committed to their work to reciprocate the good gestures of Governor Nyesom Wike. Obuah, in a statement, yesterday, to felicitate with workers in the state, urged them to leverage on the enabling environment provided by the administration of Governor Wike whom he described as the most workers friendly governor in Nigeria. He urged them to continue to work hard and increase their productivity, adding that “to whom much is given, much is also expected.” Recalling what he called the dark era for Rivers State workers under the administration of the immediate past state government, he said the former governor subjected workers to untold hardship with months of unpaid salaries. “To the glory of God, Governor Wike has, as at today , not only cleared all of those unpaid workers’ salaries owed by the former governor but has gone ahead to clear even those owed the pensioners,” he said. He said as those who play critical role in the development of the state, workers should complement Governor Wike’s efforts and shun truancy or any act capable of defeating the noble objective of government. Obuah called on workers to use the occasion of the World Workers Day and pray for the continued success of the Governor Wike administration as he strives to deliver the dividends of democracy to them.
