… Appreciates NLC, TUC for Support during Elections
Governor-elect of Akwa Ibom State, Pastor Umo Eno has promised to continuously prioritize workers’ welfare in the state.
In his solidarity message at the labour day celebration held at the Ibom Hall Ground, Uyo, he noted that Governor Udom Emmanuel has laid a solid foundation and built a robust relationship with workers, adding that his administration will further on the strides.
He noted that the theme of the year’s celebration, “Workers’ Rights and Socio- Economic Justice,” is very apt and in line with his vision to ensure that workers across the state and at different levels are rightfully renumerated.
He appreciated the leadership and members of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) for their overwhelming support during the electioneering period.
According to him, “We want to use this opportunity to thank the NLC and the TUC for the overwhelming support they gave to us during the election and for making sure that we were returned elected. I thank God that we ended our campaigns with the NLC and the TUC.
“We thank you that you kept to your own side of the promise by voting for us and we will also keep our side of the promise.
“We will like to assure you that we will continue to build on the good works of Governor Udom Emmanuel. The truth about it is that the foundation has been laid, the building raised and the infrastructure provided, and so all we need to do is to complete the building and to continue to prioritize the welfare of workers in our state.
“I like to assure you, because we know that without you no programme of government would see the light of the day, we will work with you.
“We have watched, we have seen, heard and understood your pain points, we guarantee that we will look into them and work with you to ensure that our workers continue to give their best. Don’t forget that once in a while, there will be happy hour,” he rounded off on a lighter note.
