Governor Mr. Willie Obiano, stated this on Wednesday at the Jerome Udoji secretariat, Awka. He said: “A few weeks after I was sworn in as your governor, we took bold steps to look into the difficulties workers were having in
transporting themselves to Awka from various parts of the state. .
Consequently, we provided 4 buses to convey workers from Onitsha, Otuocha, Nnewi and Ekwulobia to and from Awka. We also donated 3 buses to NLC, NUC and JNC. Similarly, less than one year into my administration, we increased workers’ salaries by 15%. I also assured you that I would do more if our Internally Generated Revenue grows. .
Interestingly, we increased salaries at a time when oil prices were crashing and governments were looking for bailouts. In spite of the prevailing difficulties, we have kept our promise to always pay your salaries regularly.”….. cheap political stunt. Next gist pls…..
