Ondo NLC gets new chairman

Ondo State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Thursday elected a new Chairman, with Comrade Olapade Ademola, emerging as the new Chairman of the Labour union in the state.

Ademola who is the State Chairman of the Nigeria Civil Service Union (NCSU) emerged as the new chairman after members of the State Executive Council (SEC) of the Congress spreading across 22 affiliate unions unanimously elected him as the state’s NLC chairman.

The decision was taken during a special meeting held at the State NLC Secretariat at Alagbaka Akure, the state capital on Thursday

The position of the NLC Chairman became vacant last month following the retirement of the former occupant, Comrade Victor Oladele Amoko.

During the meeting presided over by the NLC Vice Chairperson, Comrade (Mrs) Busola Adewumi,  the SEC members numbering 41, unanimously empowered Comrade Ademola to henceforth act as the Chairman of the NLC in the state in line with Article 11 of the Congress’ Constitution.

The SEC-in-Session also approved Comrade Akin Sunday as the substantive State Secretary of NLC.

In his acceptance speech,  Ademola who appreciated the determination and doggedness of the SEC members in enthroning leadership for the Congress, vowed that he would work for enhanced welfare packages for workers in Ondo State.

He commended the state governor, Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa for his commitment to improving welfare of the state workers and pensioners since he assumed office.

He described the recent payment of gratuities to primary school teachers and local government workers who retired since 2012 as heart warming and unprecedented.

Ademola said “I want to appreciate the SEC members of Ondo State Nigeria Labor Congress for giving me the privilege and power to pilot the leadership of the Congress, I’m very happy about it and it is a big task and I pray that Almighty God should help me to do the needful.

“Workers should be expecting something better in terms of improved salary, pension, promotion and training.

“For that reason, I want to appreciate the state Governor, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa in the area of wage award to the tertiary institutions, government should not relent, they should continue the payment and then should please review upwardly that of the workers of Ondo state too because base on the  economic factor.”

Ademola however, called on the government to approve labour demands on the new minimum wage for better welfare of Nigerian workers.
