Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State reiterated his commitment to prioritizing Imo workers during this year’s Workers’ Day celebration in Owerri, the state capital.

Despite the added responsibility, Governor Uzodimma pledged to make sacrifices for the state, urging workers to join him in making Imo State exemplary.

The Governor outlined various welfare packages for workers, including the implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage, prompt salary payments, free transportation, and a health insurance scheme.
