Good will message from NULGE president Abia state
Great comrades
Unified local government system
I bring you greetings from my family and NULGE,Abia state. As we celebrate yet another workers day which is an annual event. Though we are not celebrating it but let be on record that we mark this day just like the Christians marked this years Easter celebration.
This is due to this ravaging corona virus pandemic covid 19.
This pandemic which spreads like wild fire has done more harm than good as it has affected all our programmes. But there’s great hope. Its just a matter of time. Our God is faithful. Let’s continue to trust in the Lord as the author and finisher of our faith. Psalm 91 is our hope,let’s meditate rehearse it regularly in prayers.
Distinguished comrades,I thank you for your support even in the face of hardship and many challenges. My faithful God will continue to give us the strength to overcome and move forward. We shall conquer by God’s grace.
Forward ever==backwards never.
Comrades,the essence of May Day celebration is for us to Appraise the situations, look our prospects, improve on it,look at our challenges, over come it. Look into the relationship with our employers the Government, make good and reliable input/ advise ,put on the needed pressure for a better condition of work to our members and service delivery.
It is my candid advise that all Local government workers put in their best,justify their employment and service to the Nation and humanity, believing in the fact that a worker deserves his/wage.
No organization exists without challenges. Local govt workers across the state has some challenges which includes but not limited the the under mentioned (1) Payment if Arrears of Salaries ie March and April 2020
(2)Payment of minimum wage to local government workers
(3)Payment of Conhess/Conmess to Health workers in the local government system
(4)Payment of arrears of Leave allowances from 2014 to 2020
(5)Payment of of promotion arrears for over four years
(6)Conduct of promotion for 2019 and 2020
(7)In service training/ release of training allowances to those who are already under training and deserving staff in various institutions of Higher learning
(8)Payment of pensions and Gratuity to Local government retirees.
(9)Training of our staff
(10)Provision of serene/good working environment/ office accommodate and infrastructure
(11) Revenue
(12)Biometric and Clocking of attendance Etc etc etc.
It is my believe that apart from Covid 19 pandemic these challenges wouldn’t have been unresolved. Howbeit, we promise to contain all the challenges for a better service delivery.
On those our prospects during and after our tour of the seventeen local government, we are making good and frantic efforts to ensure we remain afloat.
The union appreciates the Federal government, And Abia state government under the leadership of Okezie Victor Ikpeazu PhHappy the seventeen local government chairmen, in their efforts, in containing with the pandemic.
The union hereby call on the state government to do everything within her powers to ensure the safety of live of Abia citizens.
Comrades, prayer is the key, let us devote at least ten(10) minutes everyday to pray for our union, state government, our country Nigeria and the world at large, asking for Gods intervention.
Finally I wish all of us Happy *Workers Day*
Together we can
Aluta Continua
Victory Assured
Thanks and God bless.
Comrade Nwaigwe Ikechi Kennedy
Abia State.
