The Head of Service of the Anambra State Civil Service, Barr. Harry Uduh, has said that Governor Willie Obiano won’t fall short of the expectations of workers as his utmost priority is better conditions of service for the state workforce.
The Head of Service made the assertion while speaking with our correspondent in his office at the secretariat complex Awka on Tuesday.
Uduh said that the governor’s labour-friendly disposition has not changed and that he was working assiduously to ensure that their needs were met. Though he pointed out that issues could arise, he said that the issues would always be resolved amicably.
He explained that people were working round the clock to ensure that labour matters did not linger for too long and that labour and the executive arm of the government still maintained very cordial and hamonious relations in the state.
The Head of Service noted that Christmas was around the corner and the workers were full of expectations as to what the governor has in stock for them. He said workers have no reason to worry about welfare because the governor has never promised and falled them.
He said Governor Obiano does not have any issues with the organised labour and that the relationship was simply perfect adding that negotiations were ongoing to make sure that workers in Anambra state got the best of attention any state government could offer.
Uduh also revealed that Anambra workers were in for better days as the new financial year begins because the governor made provisions for the new minimum wage in the budget of the state civil service stressing that the governor was determined to pay the new national minimum wage and that he should not be compelled to muddle everything up in one swoop.
The Head of Service therefore admonished workers to be patient as well as maintain their trust in the governor because he has not fallen short of their expectations and has always kept his promises to workers in Anambra state.
