“Regular and timely payment of wages to workers will among others, enhance their welfare with the overall objectives of promoting efficiency and productivity in the civil service.”
The Governor, according to the statement, urged workers to reciprocate government’s good intention by upholding good work ethics, adherence to rules and regulations and being creative at all times in the discharge of their duties.”
Meanwhile, work has begun on the garment factory proposed by the Governor.
Sited on a six hectare parcel of land along the Goodluck Jonathan by-pass, Calabar, the garment factory which is one of Governor Ayade’s industrialization initiatives is aimed at generating employment for the citizenry.
Upon completion, the factory is expected to generate about a thousand jobs.
