Governor of Kaduna State, Mr. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero on Thursday expressed appreciation to Civil Servants in the State for the immense support they gave his administration in the last two and half years.

In a statement by his Media Aide, Ahmed Maiyaki, Governor Yero congratulates workers in the State as they commemorate this year’s Workers Day, saying “I salute the courage and patriotic commitments of majority of our workers to moving Kaduna State forward. This was evident by the level of support we received during this period that we are in office.”

The Governor said his administration is pleased to have sustained a period of cordial industrial working relations with Workers adding that “we are grateful to all labour unions for cooperating with us in ensuring that Kaduna State is free of strikes by workers.”

Yero said in the last two years, the present administration has continued to ensure improved welfare for all workers in the State “salaries are always paid as at when due, allowances are paid and we also settled pension and gratuity arrears that accumulated since 2006, amounting to over N17 billion.”

Mr Yero salutes all workers in Kaduna State and wishes them peaceful Workers Day celebrations.
