Governor Obiano says: “A few weeks after I was sworn in as your governor, we took bold steps to look into the difficulties workers were having in transporting themselves to Awka from various parts of the state. “Similarly, less than one year into my administration, we increased workers’ salaries by 15%.
“I also assured you that I would do more if our Internally Generated Revenue grows. Interestingly, we increased salaries at a time when oil prices were crashing and governments were looking for bailouts.
“In spite of the prevailing difficulties, we have kept our promise to always pay your salaries regularly.”
