Organised labour in Ondo state has said that its expectations from the second term administration of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu are very high.
The unions who urged Governor Akeredolu to keep faith with his electioneering promises said they were happy to support his reelection because of his administration’s strides and regular payment of salaries.
This was contained in a letter signed by the state Chairmen and Secretaries of Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress and Joint Negotiating Council, Sunday Adeleye, Helen Odofin, Niyi Fabunmi; Omokehinde Shado, Tajudeen Balogun and Kehinde Olomiye respectively.
The labour leaders reminded the Ondo Governor not to forget his promises to the worker’s civil servants who they noted have been the engine of his administration’s policies.
