The National President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba, has called on the Ekiti State Governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi, not to renege on his campaign promises to the workers in the state, especially the prompt settlement of their unpaid salary arrears and pension, as soon as he is sworn in in October.
He made this call on Tuesday in Abeokuta, during the inauguration of the ultra-modern hall built by the leadership of the Ogun State Council of the National Union of Road Transport Workers led by Mr Akeem Adeosun.
Wabba observed that one of the major factors that worked against the outgoing government in Ekiti State during the Saturday, July 14th, 2018 governorship election was its failure to offset the more than six months’ salary arrears and pensions owed workers.
The NLC president noted that workers everywhere would always support any government that took their welfare as a priority, adding that they (workers) created the wealth.
He said, “I want to use this opportunity to congratulate the Independent National Electoral Commission for the conduct of the governorship election in Ekiti State. I want to congratulate the incoming governor. INEC played a very important role, I think that will help our politics in the future.
“I can see that one issue that played out is that the workers and pensioners in the state have not been paid salaries for the past six to eight months.
“What happened in Ekiti is that workers will no longer be maltreated. Fayemi should address the workers’ plight by fulfilling his promises and offsetting the salary arrears of workers and pension.”
