Imo Governor-elect, Chief Emeka Ihedioha has assured workers in the state of better working conditions when he assumes office on May 29.
Ihedioha made the promise on Wednesday in a goodwill message to Imo workers, signed by his media aide, Mr. Chibuike Onyeukwu, in celebration of this year’s May Day.
However, he called for change of attitude on the part of the workers, urging them to reflect on the progress and aspirations of the state.
His words, “I would like use this opportunity to assure that the condition of workers in the state will receive priority attention in my government. I only wish to call for a change of attitude among workers.”
“I advice that we should use today to reflect on the state of our dear Imo State, because there is the urgent need to improve the condition of workers, with a view to ensure a motivated workforce. This is the only way we will achieve the rebuilding of our state”, Ihedioha said.
Agreeing with the school of thought that believe the engine room of government and development are the workers, Ihedioha maintained that “the welfare and efficiency of the workforce must be of utmost priority, if we must make progress as a state, desirous of transformation.
“The time has come to purge ourselves of tendencies that could stall the expected progress of our state,” he added.
He also used the opportunity to reiterate his commitment towards ensuring efficient civil service and a motivated workforce in the state.
