Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that his administration will continue to give priority attention to the welfare of civil servants.
Also, Former Plateau State Governor, Senator Jonah David Jang declared that the excellent performance of Governor Wike and other PDP Governors is an indication that only PDP can reedem Nigeria.
They spoke on Monday during the commissioning of 24 3-Bedroom Flats for Civil Servants in Port Harcourt.
Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, Governor Wike said;
“This is a day for workers. This is a direct project meant for the workers of Rivers State who are the engine room of this administration. As our civil servants inhabit this wonderful estate, they must take steps to keep it clean. We will appoint a facility manager, but the payment will be borne by the state government and the occupants.”
He informed that the State Government will flag off the construction of Labour House on June 29, 2018.
“We are interested in workers welfare. Our commitment is to ensure that we create the right environment for workers to perform their roles,” he said.
Commissioning the 24 3-Bedroom Flats for Civil Servants, Former Plateau State Governor, Senator Jonah David Jang said that projects are only being commissioned in PDP States.
He lauded Governor Wike for transforming the landscape of Rivers State with new projects, noting that Port Harcourt is regaining her garden city status.
“What our governors are doing , particularly what Governor Wike is doing , you cannot but bring PDP back to transform the country. There is no sign that anything new will happen. If they have not done anything new in three years, they cannot do it in the campaign year,” he said.
The Former Plateau State Governor noted that there are no new projects being commissioned in APC States because they are not interested in the welfare of their people.
Chairman of Nigerian Labour Congress, Rivers State Council, Comrade Beatrice Otubo thanked the Rivers State Governor for being workers friendly. He assured the governor of the support of the governors.
Head of Service, Rivers State, Mr Rufus Godwins said that after the Odili era, Governor Wike is the first Governor to construct a brand new housing estate of Rivers Civil Servants.
