THE Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige and the National President of Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC), Comrade (Dr.) Bobboi Bala Kaigama, have commended Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State for his sterling performance in office and outstanding commitment to the welfare of the state’s workers.

The duo made the commendations in their separate speeches during the groundbreaking ceremony of the 100 Housing Units for Nigerian workers by the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN) in collaboration with Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress Nigeria (TUC), and Nigeria Employer’s Consultative Association (NECA), held at Ede-Oballa, Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Speaking at the epoch making event, the TUC National President stated that the TUC leadership is proud of Gov. Ugwuanyi for not only paying workers’ salaries regularly but also for ensuring that they have decent working environment.

Comrade Kaigama, who disclosed that Gov. Ugwuanyi is second to none in the provision of workers’ welfare in the South East geo-political zone, added that the governor has set the pace for other states to emulate.

Describing Gov. Ugwuanyi as a performer, the labour leader told the governor, “Enugu State is working under your leadership and that is not only because you are a performer, but you exhibit the sense of performance with humility”.

He maintained that the governor is very humble and caring and listens when it comes to challenges confronting the workers and the entire people of Enugu, saying: “If there is any governor that Nigerian workers can come up and work for his success particularly for his second term, we are proud to say that our members will work for you”.

According to him, “we would say it anywhere because you have done it and you are doing it. We assure that the working class not only in Enugu State but also in the entire nation is supporting you on your efforts to deliver the dividends of democracy”.

Appreciating Gov. Ugwuanyi for his efforts to give succor to the state workforce through provision of affordable accommodation, the TUC President urged Enugu workers to reciprocate this gesture by ensuring that you continue to have a harmonious working relationship with your good government”.

In his remark, the Labour and Employment minister, Dr. Ngige lauded the initiative of the FMBN in partnership with the state government and other concerned bodies to provide affordable housings for the workers as a welcome development, pointing out that the project is in line with tripartite policy of the federal government.
