Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano has presented two new air-conditioned 50-seater buses to the State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
Obiano, who had earlier donated commuter buses to the State civil service with the purpose of conveying civil servants to and from work everyday, disclosed that the kind gesture was aimed at improving the conditions of workers.
The governor also recalled how he increased their monthly emolument to 15 percent and promised to do more as the State Internally Generated Revenue continue to improve.
Receiving the vehicles at Governor?s Lodge, the State Chairman of NLC, Comrade Patrick Obianyo, while noting that the state government had previously presented a vehicle to the Union, explained that the buses would enhance the activities of the Congress towards promoting the welfare of workers, even as he assured him that civil servants would reciprocate through offering greater productivity.
In a remark, the Head of Service of Anambra State, Mr. Chidi Ezeoke extolled the governor pointing out that his administration was genuinely committed to impacting positively on the lives of the workers and making life more meaningful for Ndi Anambra.
