Mkpoikana Udoma 03 December 2015, Sweetcrude, Port Harcourt – The Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, Rivers State chapter, has charged workers in the state to be more productive in 2015.
Acting Chairman of the NLC in Rivers state, Comrade Williams Adah gave the charge while exchanging views with newsmen, Friday, in Port Harcourt.
According to him, “I am charging all workers in Rivers State to be productive, whether good or bad we hope that in the shortest possible time the elections will come and go, and a new governor will emerge, and all their (workers) rights and benefits will be given to them. Therefore the more reason all hands must be on deck to move Rivers state forward”.
The Rivers State NLC Boss, Comrade Adah Williams, also said labour is working on modalities to engage all governorship candidates in the state, in order to enable workers choose who will best represent their interest.
He said: “Labour in the state has actually put up plans to engage all the governorship candidates in the state for the interest of workers. We are going to carefully look at the governorship candidates of the different parties, and we are also going to study the manifesto of each of the parties, then we would determine which party will have the interest of the workers at heart, so we could sensitize the workers to mobilise and vote for the party” he said.
