The National leadership of Young Workers’ Committee, an arm of the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees, has lauded the efforts of the Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, in developing the state.
A statement issued on Sunday by Leonard Nkah, President of the NULGE Ebonyi State Chapter, said the committee made the commendation during the inauguration of the Ebonyi State Chapter of Younger Workers’ Committee.
The statement quoted Jamila Yusuf, National Chairperson, Young Workers’ Committee, as describing Umahi as having demonstrated outstanding performance in leadership, governance and development of Ebonyi State.
Yusuf, however, pointed out that the creation of Young Workers’ Committee was aimed at giving youths at national, state and local government levels defined functions and recognition.
On his part, Nkah expressed the determination of NULGE to continually ensure the welfare of local government employees in the state.
While extolling the harmonious working relationship existing between the state government and local government employees, Nkah urged workers to remain steadfast and always put in their best.
Nkah, who doubles as the Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress, Ebonyi State Chapter, also promised to provide quality leadership that would yield more positive results.
The highlight of the event was the swearing in of members of state executive of Young Workers’ Committee.
They are Okeh Christopher, State Chairman; Chris Obinna Ani, Deputy Chairman; and Abraham Florence, Acting Secretary.
In his acceptance speech, Christopher promised to run an open and purposeful administration that would be constitutionally-driven.
