“Umahi was reelected because of his competence and performance. His infrastructural development speaks for itself. He has transformed Abakaliki to a modern city within four years,’’ Nkah noted.
Nkah, who is also the president, Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees, Ebonyi Chapter, stressed the need for Umahi to address the welfare of issues labour has been raising. He listed them as smooth running of the civil service in accordance with established rules and regulations and payment of the new minimum wage when passed into law as promised.
Nkah also tasked the governor to strengthen the local government system and boost teachers’ welfare.
He assured the governor of support from the entire workforce as well as improved productivity.
Recall that in 2017, the organised labour, comprising the NLC and Trade Union Congress (TUC) conferred the title of `Enyi Ndi Oru,’ (friend of workers) on Umahi, during a rally organised by industrial unions in Ebonyi. (NAN)
