Members of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) in Edo state have explored their witty streak as they punned Governor Godwin Obaseki’s name to indicate divine justice in Edo State affairs, adding, “Godwin is synonymous with Justice”.
This was as the union met with Governor Obaseki at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City to celebrate the International Workers’ Day.
The Chairman of the Edo state council of the TUC, Comrade Ohue Marshall said: “I want to begin by saying congratulations on your victory at the polls as Governor of Edo state, which was once again reaffirmed at the election petition tribunal. Despite the situation facing workers, I can see hope, I have hope. Optimism in God, which is our life propeller, elicits that joy, which hope gives”.
He continued that in barely six months since Obaseki assumed office as Governor of Edo state, it was apt to declaim that the state was already witnessing giant strides in areas of construction and rehabilitation of roads in the Benin metropolis.
In addition, he expressed satisfaction with the governor’s habit of ensuring prompt payment of workers’ salaries in the state since he assumed office.
“I’d like to use this special day to say thank you for the regular payment of workers’ salaries, even in this economic recession. I will once again say a very big thank you for the show of love towards the Pension Board Staff for the re-call and the payment of their salaries and this I sincerely hope you will extend to other areas that also required the attention of government”.
