Gov AbdulRazaq Bags Fellowship Of Labour Institute Award in Kwara

AREWA AGENDA – Governor AbdulRaman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State has bagged the honorary Fellowship of the National Labour Institute (FNLS).

Voice of Nigeria reports that the conferment of the award was part of the activities to mark the 40th year anniversary of the Michael Imoudu National Institute for Labour Studies’ (MINILS) Ilorin, Kwara State.

The award, according to the Institute, was in recognition of the Governor’s exceptional commitment to workers’ welfare and how he maintains a goodwill with the labour leaders in the state.

AbdulRazaq, in turn, reassured the labour unions of his administration’s resolve to sustain the existing good working relationships, seeking an improved engagement with the union leaders.

He congratulated the Institute on its 40th anniversary and appreciated them for the honour.

The Governor tasked the union leaders to get prepared for a positive interface with regard to legitimacy of the new minimum wage in the face of high inflation in the country.

AbdulRazaq again declared that the government will not sack workers as doing so offers no sustainable benefits to the state and the workers.

Director General of Michael Imoudu National Institute for Labour Studies (MINILS), Comrade Issa Aremu, said the award was considered necessary to appreciate the Governor’s commitment to workers’ welfare, his consistent payment of the minimum wage, and how he paves the way for freedom of association among the workers and union leaders in the state.

The event was attended by government officials and various labour union leaders.
