The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Abia state chapter has declared its Support for the Governor Alex Otti led-government over the ongoing workers verification exercise and other ongoing reforms being carried out by the government with a view to establishing a strong and productive civil service that would benefit all citizens.

In a release jointly signed by the state Chairman and the state secretary and made available to the press in Umuahia, NLC commended the Governor for demonstrating commitment to reposition the Civil Service and specially applauded the Governor’s pledge to clear the backlog of salary and pension arrears before the end of the year.

The NLC however expressed concern over the invitation of many MDAs to appear for verification on the same day, a situation they said has brought avoidable hitches and frustration on the side of the workers, and appealed that the number should be reduced.



The Labour Union therefore called on government to extend the deadline for the verification exercise while appealing that the MDAs should appear on separate days so that workers wouldn’t be subjected to avoidable suffering.
