TUC, NAWOJ Hail Amosun’s People-Oriented Policies
The leadership of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) and the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), have applauded Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s policies which they say have brought succour to the people of Ogun State.
While the TUC submitted that the governor has been able to cater for the basic needs of the people, NAWOJ hailed him for protecting the rights of the women in the state.
President- General of the TUC and National President, Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, Comrade Bobboi Kaigama, while speaking during a courtesy call on Amosun in Governor’s Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta yesterday, said the governor has also addressed the decadence in the physical structure of the state.
“Your policies also stand tall in the comity of states, which is highly commendable, he added, pledging the support of the union to the state.
Kaigama urged the governor to always engage the union in developmental programmes that would better the lots of the people of the state while describing him as a man that has earned the respect of trade unions.
Similarly, NAWOJ National President, who also led national and state Executive Committee members to the governor, Mrs Ifeyinwa Omowole, commended him for transforming the state and for his has passion to secure the rights of abused women, particularly the building of a Shelter Home for abused children and women.
The president appreciated the governor for the continuous support to the association at all times, observing that the administration is press friendly and Ogun State is one of the states in the Southern states that NAWOJ enjoys the support of the state government.
Omowole also craved for the support of the state government in supporting the 25th Anniversary of NAWOJ scheduled to hold in the state.
Responding to the speech of the TUC boss, Amosun said his government would not take the support of workers for granted and expressed delight that the association appreciates the efforts of his government.
“Gradually, people are seeing the love and passion that we have for the workers and the good people of the state,” he stated, assuring that in about a years time, people will marvel at the direct positive impact of his administration’s industrialization drive on the daily lives of the people of Ogun.
This, he said, is because of the priority placed in harnessing the potentials of the real sector, which he noted, is creating wealth for the citizens.
Also addressing the NAWOJ leaders, Amosun charged the women journalists not to offer themselves as ready tools in the hands of dubious and unpatriotic politicians, who are desperate for elective positions and would seek their support to achieve their selfish ends.
Earlier, while declaring open the maiden meeting of NAWOJ, B-Zone, Amosun admonished members of the association to take advantage of their profession as agent of mass mobilization to increase the level of awareness among women.
Represented by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs. Funmi Wakama, he described discrimination and violence against women as an obstacle to women’s participation on equal terms with men in political, social, economic and cultural activities.
