  • Published in Politics

The Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Monday Igbuya on Saturday paid tribute to workers for their contributions to the country’s economic development. He also praised Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for creating an environment for development and growth.

In a statement in Asaba, Igbuya praised Okowa for creating jobs, promoting investment, paying workers and setting the tone and foundation for economic progress and development.

“This administration is labour friendly. Workers will continue to receive recognition and encouragement. The place of labour will continue to be side by side with the political actors and not one degree lower. The House of Assembly will give the fullest support and protection to workers’ rights” he said.

Igbuya also commended the governor for his efforts and commitment in finding sustainable solutions to the plight of unemployed youth in the state.

He urged the workers to support the administration.

“The future of Delta State is not just in the hands of the government. It is in the hands of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN). It is in the hands of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC). It is in the hands of Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC)”

He urged workers to follow the governor’s footsteps by adhering to good governance ethics.

“Government is committed to creating jobs, wealth and ensuring a better deal for all. The PDP government is committed to giving Deltans a brighter future. I enjoin you to continue your hard work and commitment to the development of the state.

Stressing that government revenue was still too low to meet ambiguous demands, Igbuya promised to continue sorting out workers grievances.

“With your help, we can weed out ghost workers and ghost pensioners and end the stealing and wastage of public resources” he said.

Government will continue to invest in work and infrastructure” he added.
