“We are quite aware that the Nasarawa state Labour force have been most patient and law-abiding most especially for surviving the various challenges in the past 15 years, which includes their welfare and the payments of their salaries in percentages.
“Also, the erratic settlements of their entitlements and the non-implementation of their periodic promotion, as of rights. We cannot but praise our strong minded workforce for their patience, sacrifice and dedication,” he said.
