WARRI— GOVERNORSHIP aspirant in Delta State on the platform of Action Democratic Party, ADP, Mr. Frank Esanubi, has flayed the state government for allowing major private companies such as Eternit to close shop in the state, saying measures should have been put in place to encourage such big firms to remain in the state.
Esanubi, Deputy National President of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Associa-tion, PENGASSAN, who unveiled his governorship bid before party’s faithful at a town hall meeting in Sapele, noted that he was hopeful he will dislodge Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 governorship election.
“Flower Mills is gone. They said AT&P, but they are not doing what they are supposed to do because the vision of AT&P is not to produce desk for primary schools.
“The vision of AT&P is to be the topmost furniture company in the country. They will tell you go to AT&P Sapele, that is where to get furniture. That’s the vision we have for this town.
“My commitment to the workers of Delta State is that by the 25th of every month, they will get their salaries. I have been a worker all my life and I am still a worker.
“The worst evil you can do to a worker is to have the person work for 30 days and refuse to pay him.”
