    Enugu Workers, pensioners reiterate support for Ugwuanyi’s re-election

    In Enugu, civil servants and pensioners converged at the popular Michael Okpara Square to mark the 2018 Workers’ Day, where they celebrated the good works of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi. 

    The public and civil servants and retirees, including private workers, through the addresses presented separately by the state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress NLC, Comrade Virginus Nwobodo, represented by his deputy, Comrade Maurice Eze and his counterpart from the Trade Union Congress, TUC, Comrade Igbokwe Chukwuma Igbokwe, respectively eulogized Gov. Ugwuanyi for his “exemplary leadership style” and “labour-friendly disposition” in the state. 

    The workers   reiterated their stance on the earlier endorsement of Gov. Ugwuanyi’s re-election in 2019, stressing that “the reason for the clamour for continuity is based on the outstanding performances of Governor Ugwuanyi” 

    They highlighted the achievements of the governor that have impacted positively on their lives such as “prompt payment of monthly salaries/pensions, other allowances to state public and civil servants; absorption of 54 per cent of total cost of 100 housing units at Elim Estate allocated to workers; payment of outstanding arrears of salaries/pensions/allowances to Local Government Staff, through prudent utilisation of 100 per cent of LG share of the Paris Club Refunds; promotion of teachers and recruitment of over 4000 school teachers as well as elongation of terminal grade of qualified primary school teachers to level 16.

     In his address, Gov. Ugwuanyi, who felicitated with the workers said: “I have come here as one of you because I am also a worker and I want to thank you all for your prayers and for the wonderful support, cooperation and understanding that you have continued to offer us as we strive to fulfill the mandate that the good people of Enugu State had graciously given to us.”
