Edo State Government has called for the support of all stakeholders to sustain ongoing reforms across sectors of the state, saying the government is committed to realising the Making Edo Great Again (MEGA) Agenda and achieving economic prosperity for Edo people.

Edo State Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa, according to a statement by the Special Assistant on Media to the governor, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, made the call at a meeting with different workers’ unions in the state.

Okungbowa noted that the ongoing reforms would improve the livelihoods of the people, ensure sustainable growth and development and achieve a progressive, prosperous state.

The unions include the state chapters of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) and Joint Negotiating Council (JNC), among others.

The HOS stated that the meeting was aimed at strengthening the unity that exists between government and organised labour, adding: “The industrial harmony that we have in the state today is because of the cooperation that exists between government, organised labour and various unions. This has helped in deepening the gains recorded by the government across all sectors of the state.”

He further noted that the government has placed emphasis on critical sectors of the state, including infrastructure, education, manpower development, and physical planning, among others.

On their part, the TUC Chairman, Marshal Ohrue; JNC Chairman, Oisamaye Godwin and the Secretary, Edo NLC, Barry Imade, hailed Obaseki for prioritising the reform of the state’s civil and public service.
