The governor reassured the workers that his government would continue reforms and projects to improve the welfare of workers and ensure better living conditions for the people of Edo, and he urged the workers in the country to abandon the tradition of reacting after policies that affect them have already been made.

 

Consequently, he urged the employees to hold governments accountable for their policies and programmes.

Obaseki stated, “It would be a miracle if the Federal Government and state governments could continue to pay salaries beyond June of this year without resorting to massive money printing or eliminating fuel subsidies. Either option will increase hardship and suffering for Nigerians, particularly workers.

“We must all ensure that the pain and burden of these necessary measures are not borne solely by workers. Workers must now rise and ensure that they are at the forefront of any subsidy removal discussions. You must abandon the custom of reacting after these policies have been established and instead insist on taking charge and ensuring complete transparency and disclosure. If we are all undertaking a reform, then the benefits and costs of the reforms must be shared by all Nigerians, not just the underprivileged.”
