Archibong lauds gov. Ayade’S labour-friendly disposition … urges NLC-affiliates to support government

By Kingsley Agim

Cross River Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mrs. RoseMary Archibong has commended the disposition of Governor Ben Ayade towards the welfare of workers in the State.
Mrs. Archibong gave the commendation when she declared open the Radio, Television, Theatre and Arts Workers union (RATTAWU), Cross River State Council's 9th Triennial State Delegate Conference, held yesterday, at the NLC Solidarity House, Calabar.

The Commissioner, who thanked Governor Ayade for facilitating the speedy construction and completion of the ultra-modern secretariat (NLC Solidarity House) for the State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress, also stated that the Governor's inclination towards a robust and better workforce in Cross River has been orchestrated through prompt and regular payment of salaries and the entrenchment of employment of thousands of Cross Riverians; a feat which has earned him (Gov. Ayade) the Best Labour Friendly Governor Award.

She also lauded the Comrade John Ushie-led State NLC for its synergy and cordial relationship with the government, a situation she maintained, has made for a productive and prosperous Cross River State.

Declaring the event open, the Information and Orientation boss used the opportunity to call on all Labour-affiliated bodies to continue to be supportive of the policies, programmes and activities of the Ayade-led administration, which she said, are aimed at charting a new course of industrialization for economic prosperity of the State.

Mrs. Archibong congratulated the out-gone leadership of RATTAWU for a successful tenure of office, and also charged the in-coming executives to borrow a leaf from Governor Ayade's mantra of 'politics with ethics' by putting the interest of the Union first.
