Omar Applauds Gov Chime On Industrial Harmony


The National President
of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Abdulwaheed Ibrahim Omar, has commended the Governor of Enugu State, Mr Sullivan Chime for the very cordial relationship between his government and workers in the state.
Comrade Omar made the commendation when he led the entire National Administrative Committee of the congress, comprising the National Working Committee and National Executive Council of the body on a courtesy visit to Government House, Enugu, recently.
The NLC National President described as highly commendable the disposition of the state government to pay workers their salary and wages on or before the twenty-fifth of every month and to pay the 27.5% increase to teachers in the state.
According to him, “I wish to commend the relationship between government and workers in Enugu State to very large extent in terms of payment of salary and wages and other allowances to the workers in the state.”
“Enugu State has called more than any other state in the country because I was told that hardly you cross the 25th of any month without workers in the state receiving their salary and wages.”
The NLC boss also said, “I am excited that Enugu State Government is paying the 27.5% per cent salary increase to teachers in the state unlike in other states where government said that the 27.5 per cent increase should be part of the minimum wage.
Comrade Omar applauded the governor for the on-going road infrastructure development in the state capital and in other parts of the state and said, “we noticed the appreciable development going on in Enugu State, the road network is one of the best in the state capital and even an enemy can attest to that.
He also praised the governor for introducing free education from primary level to junior secondary school class III and free maternal and child healthcare in hospital in the state, adding that the programme were worthy of emulation.
He described the free education programme of government as a very wise decision that would help lay a very solid foundation for manpower development of the state while the free healthcare would promote a healthy society.
