The Edo State Chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees have reaffirmed support for the re-election bid of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
The Labour Unions expressed confidence that Obaseki would emerge victorious in the poll on Saturday, adding that his developmental strides across the state would earn him a second term in office.
Emmanuel Ademokun, the Chairman of the Edo NLC, commended the governor for prioritising the welfare of workers in the state.
“We did not come here to campaign today but to let everybody know that the governor doesn’t joke with payment of pension and salaries. What do we want again? You don’t change a working governor, but rather you reelect him.”
“For four years in Edo State, workers have been promptly paid their salaries; for four years in the state there have been no strike actions. What else could we have asked of this man?” the Chairman of TUC, Mr. Marshal Orhue, said.
