May Day: We’ll always care for you, AbdulRazaq tells workers
Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has congratulated workers in the state on the occasion of another May Day, reiterating that they deserve the best and would always have his ears.
“I stand in solidarity with the workers across the world especially in Kwara State where our administration has been consistent in listening to them, creating a better working atmosphere, and protecting their dignity and professionalism,” AbdulRazaq said in a statement by his media spokesman Rafiu Ajakaye.
“Whatever the circumstances, we will make sure to always cater for the workers within the limit allowed by resources and demand for collective sacrifice in the midst of global economic meltdown.
“The constant and timely salary payments, purchase of modern tools and vehicles, and restoration of running cost for optimal service delivery are just a few examples in this regard.
“While the days ahead promise to be tough for every segment of the society in the face of sharp reduction in revenues, our administration will not be found wanting in showing sympathy to the plight of workers, be they in the formal or informal sector.”
The Governor commended the workers and their umbrella bodies for their support and understanding since his inauguration last year May 29.
He urged the workers and their unions to keep faith with the administration in its efforts to not just catering for them but also putting in place the necessary infrastructure to allow for a decent work environment and an economy that would make life a lot better for all.
