Labour unions endorse Tambuwal for second term


Labour unions in Sokoto State have  backed  Governor  Aminu Tambuwal for a second term as governor of the state.



The  unions endorsed the  candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state  during  an  interactive session he held with labour  leaders and workers  in Sokoto on Friday.



The  unions included  the  United Labour Congress, Trade union Congress,  National Union of Pensioners, National Union of Teachers, Medical and Health Workers Union, National Road Transport Workers and Association of Motorcycles Operators.



The state  NLC Chairman, Umar Aminu,  said  the Tambuwal administration  was  the most worker- friendly  in  the history of the state.



He commended the governor for the prompt payment of salaries and pensions.



He said, “We have about 60,000 workers in the state but the governor has  never thought  of  reducing the number of workers.



“Before the emergence of Tambuwal, pensioners were owed up to seven years, but it is now a thing of the past.”



However, Aminu  urged the workers in the state to pay the governor back by voting him  in the March 2. governship election.



Tambuwal reassured  workers in the state  that  he would pay the  new minimum wage  approved by the National Economic Council.
