The Chairman, Delta State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Goodluck Ofobruku, has said civil servants in Delta state are happy with the state government in the delivery of infrastructural and human capital development.
Comrade Ofobruku, who stated this while speaking to newsmen during the celebration of the Workers’ Day in Asaba, added that the large turn out of workers at the event clearly showed that they were happy with the government, which they demonstrated by dedicating this year’s celebration to reflections on the performance of the outgoing Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, and eagerly looking forward to the inauguration of the incoming Governor, Rt. Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, come May 29.
The State NLC Chairman noted that workers in the state had been very supportive of the government and deserved to be celebrated, pointing out that while they had no serious issues with the outgoing administration, the workers were expecting improved welfare from the incoming administration to spur them to contribute more to the development of the state.
Comrade Ofobruku called on workers in the state to remain committed and dedicated to the implementation of the policies and programmes of the political class in the overall interest of the state, promising that the Organized Labour in the state would continue to explore collective bargaining in pushing for enhanced welfare of workers.
