Goodnews: The only state governor that wants to increase salaries again

It’s now difficult to defend the kind of policies the All Progressives congress is churning out. Not one APC governor backed the president in their last meeting.

For every well thinking Nigerian, there is a larger reason to avoid them in 2019. So far, they’ve accomplished nothing in the list the sold us during their electioneering campaign.

There’s an obvious reason for the lack of accomplishments and that reason is traceable to the kind of people the President has surrounded himself with.

APC finally owned up to ruining the economy. This was after months of denial and blaming everyone else for the miscarried ‘change.’

Well, all is not blue as just one governor in the entire country seem to be putting smiles on the faces of electorates.

That person is Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State.

He has just promised to increase the salaries of workers in the state once the economy improves.

He also gave an assurance of his administration’s commitment toward staff training and workshops.

Obiano made the promise on Tuesday in Awka during a visit to the Anambra Local Government Service Commission.

“As soon as the economy improves, I will increase workers’ salaries, but their yearly bag of rice will be given to them.

“We are committed to transforming the local government system to greater heights through effective and efficient staff training and workshops.

“Regrettably, most members of staff lacked knowledge about the policy direction of the government.

“I am urging the commission to pass the information down to the grassroots for proper inclusion in my administration,” he said.

Dr Peter Egenti, the Chairman of the commission, commended the leadership style of the governor and his development strides.

“The leadership style of the governor is worthy of emulation.

“Also, the administration’s strides are geared toward ensuring sustainable development of the grassroots,’ Egenti said.
