The Kogi State Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Onu Edoka has called on the state government to set up a committee to look into the plight of workers in the state.

Speaking on Saturday during this year Workers Day celebration which took place at the Confluence Stadium Lokoja, he said the issue of percentage salary to primary school teachers and workers at the local government councils is unacceptable.

He added that workers in the state are facing serious hardship because of the situation they find themselves in.

He added that governor Yahaya Bello should set up a committee to look into the plight of workers in the state adding that those at the corridor of powers will never tell the governor the true situation of workers in the state.

Meanwhile, the Kogi State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has hailed Kogi State workers at all level for their commitment to the collective growth, development and stability experienced in the various sectors of the state, noting that his administration remained committed to their welfare, wellbeing.

He made this known on Saturday in his special felicitation to commemorate with Kogi State workers on the occasion of the international worker’s day which was contained in a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Muhammed Onogwu

Governor Bello noted that the State’s workforce formed the bedrock for administration and governance, hence if there was a dedicated, highly motivated and productive workforce, good governance would be further enhanced.

He expressed that Kogi State as against far back indices could now boast of a highly productive workforce that has even gained recognition by national rating Agencies for its improved productivity.

The Governor noted that his administration even under serious financial constraints have continued to promptly fulfil its financial obligation to its workforce, while it sought new means to ensure that their welfares were improved

Governor Bello however urged the workforce to remain dedicated to ensuring that their contributions in their respective work area added value to the growth and development of the state.
