Okey Maduforo, Awka

Reports available to Citypost revealed that the Deputy Gov of Anambra state His Excellency Dr Chukwuemaka Ibezim was never booed by workers during this year’s May Day Celebration in the state.

This is coming as Gov Charles Soludo is set to meet with leaders of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC in the area to discuss modalities for the welfare of workers.

To this end the governor has set up a high powered committee to meet and look into the demands of workers and also make possible pronouncements on issues affecting the state work force.

Contained in the issues to be addressed include Housing for workers , operational vehicles as well as other sundry entitlements to boost the morale of workers and ultimately improve productivity.

This is against insinuations in some quarters that at this year’s May Day celebration by the NLC that the Deputy Governor Dr Onyekachukwu Ibezim was booed by workers .

Workers had concluded arrangements for the presentation of gifts an awards to deserving Trade Unions which would be performed by Ibezim after speech by the state Chairman of the NLC Comerade Humphrey Nwafor before the match pass but the workers insisted on award presentation first

It took the intervention of the Deputy Governor Ibezim who stated that the normal protocol should be observed adding that after the presentation of gifts and awards he would respond to the demands of the workers as presented by the address of the state Chairman of the NLC which settled the disagreement.

Ibezim promised that all the demands of the workers would be presented to Soludo announcing that a Committee has been set up to look into the issues raised by the workers while a meeting between the governor and the workers would be convened within one week to address those gray areas.

The Deputy Governor reiterated the resolve of the Soludo administration to ensure conducive and worker friendly environment for Anambra workers through capacity building and constant training of workers as well as better conditions of service.
