Workers in Edo State yesterday expressed worry over who succeeds Governor Adams Oshiomhole after the expiration of his tenure this year.
The workers, however, unanimously pledged to work with a governorship candidate who will be labour-friendly and has shown enough commitment to workers’ welfare.
They also expressed concern, over the activities of some politicians and stakeholders ahead of the governorship primaries and actual contest on September 10, urging them to play by the rules of the game.
Chairman of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) Edo State chapter, Marshal Ohue, stated this during the ceremony marking this year’s May Day held at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City, the state capital.
He warned Oshiomhole to be wary of politicians who masquerade as friends but are actually after their selfish interests, stressing that they are not friends of the governor while the workers have remained resolute in their faith and commitment to the project of governance and leadership of the state.
Ohue recalled that not all the politicians who supported the All Progressives Congress from inception are still keeping faith with it as some of them have left even as he reminded the governor that they were likely to look the other way moments after the tenure of the present government ends.
