The Speaker, Ekiti State House of Assembly, Mr Kola Oluwawole, has urged civil servants in the state to exercise patience, saying relief will soon come their way.
Oluwawole, in a Workers’ Day celebration message issued in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday by his Media Aide, Mr Stephen Gbadamosi, lauded the resilience of workers across the nation in the face of dwindling revenue.
“I particularly want to praise the resilience of our workforce and the entire citizens of Ekiti State in particular and Nigeria in general.
“The resilience and perseverance during the months of economic recession has been legendary and unprecedented.
“But I have a message of hope; very soon, I believe we will all heave a sigh of relief.
“On our part as a government in Ekiti State, under the leadership of Gov. Ayo Fayose, we have not been able to sleep with our two eyes since this recession has been having adverse effect on the welfare of the workers.
“At the end of the tunnel, we will soon have light. I assure you that we are more committed to making life more meaningful to workers in the state,” he said.
The speaker said that the Federal Government must also be thinking of how to get the country out of the current economic logjam.
“I, on behalf of the entire House of Assembly in Ekiti State, congratulate the leadership and members of the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and those of Trade Union Congress (TUC),” he said.
