Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has said he is committed to uplifting the living standards and sustainable development of the state.
He said this as he received the new Executive Council members Trade Union Congress, TUC in the state recently.
Okowa told organized labour to always send out the right information to the workers to improve industrial harmony in the state. He added that if labour leaders worked hard enough, the people will thank them for it.
His words, “We should have a peaceful environment in the workplace.”
“There has to be a lot of partnership between government and workers; when the partnership is real, the people will enjoy the benefits of government.
“Organised labour should disseminate necessary information to workers to boost the partnership between workers and government.”
“The global challenges have impacted on us as a nation and it calls for prayers; the church should continue to pray for our nation and keep hope alive.
“We must continue to intercede for our country as God will make things better for us; we are happy that the prayers said at crusades not only win souls but touch our lands spiritually and positively.
“This soul-winning will help in the development of our society, because the people who are converted will become agents of change. The more we have these change agents, the more the likelihood that we can effect a change in the situation of things in the country.”
““We know the benefits of prayers; we have been in peace in Delta and this was only made possible by God and we will continue to rely on the grace of God for sustenance and stick to rendering of service to our people.
“We are elected to serve the people and as a government, we will not be distracted in delivering our electoral promises.”
