UGHELLIâ€”CHAIRMAN of Ughelli North local government council chapter of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Comrade Omo-Ohwo Ijolo, has commended chairman of the local government council, Mr. Kenneth Ibru, for his commitment to the welfare of council workers.
Ijolo, who made the commendation while chatting with newsmen in the councilâ€™s secretariat yesterday, said Mr. Kenneth Ibru has displayed great commitment to the well being of the council staff.
Expressing happiness at the manner the council chairman was managing the resources of the council, he hailed his courage not to borrow from the bank at the time the council was experiencing some financial crisis.
According to him, Ughelli North local government council is one of the few councils that did not borrow from the bank at the time, and reiterated that the council workers were owed three months salaries at the time.
Ijolo thanked Ibru for paying the three months outstanding salaries and part of the claims due to the workers without negotiation.
He disclosed that the council chairman promised that he would henceforth pay allowances due to late staff and also promised to build a secretariat/canteen for the union as soon as funds were available.
