Kwara State Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has reiterated that his administration will always priorities the welfare of workers at all times.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Governor’s Spokesperson, Rafiu Ajakaye to commemorate this year’s International Worker’s Day.
Abdulrazaq congratulated the entire workforce in the public and private sectors of the economy, commending their commitments to national growth and support for government’s programmes and policies in the state.
“I align myself with compatriots worldwide to celebrate workers whose toiling keeps the economy running against all odds. Today reminds us that behind the success of any of our programmes, projects and policies as an administration are thousands of workers whose ingenuity, patriotism and hard work are always the secret of such successes. I therefore send our profound appreciation to workers and their families on this day and always,” the Governor said.
“Workers in the services of the state government under our administration can rest assured of our commitment to their welfare at all times. The unique implementation of the full components of the minimum wage attests to this. We will always accord them the dignity and respect that they deserve, and invest in their growth as resources permit, while they reciprocate same, as always, with giving their best in the service of the Kwara people.
“Finally, we again send our commiserations to the labour unions in the state, and nationally, on the recent losses of some key unionists. We pray to God Almighty to repose the souls of the departed and comfort their families.” The statement concluded.
