Kwara governor reiterates commitment to workers’ welfare
Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of has said the welfare of workers will continue to form the thrust of his administration’s policies.
The governor, while toasting workers in the state on the May Day yesterday, said they “deserve the best” and would always have his ears.
“I stand in solidarity with the workers across the world, especially in Kwara State where our administration has been consistent in listening to them, creating a better working atmosphere and protecting their dignity and professionalism,” AbdulRazaq said.
In a statement issued in Ilorin by his media aide, Rafiu Ajakaye, the governor added: “Whatever the circumstances, we will make sure to always cater for the workers within the limit allowed by resources and demand for collective sacrifice in the midst of global economic meltdown. The constant and timely salary payment, purchase of modern tools and vehicles, as well as restoration of running cost for optimal service delivery, are just a few examples in this regard.
“While the days ahead promise to be tough for every segment of the society in the face of sharp reduction in revenues, our administration will not be found wanting in showing sympathy to the plight of workers, be they in the formal or informal sector.”
AbdulRazaq commended the workers and their umbrella bodies for their support and understanding since his inauguration in May 29, 2019.
He urged the workers and their unions to keep faith with the administration in its efforts to not just catering for them but also putting in place the necessary infrastructure to allow for a decent work environment and an economy that would make life a lot better for all.
