Med­i­cal work­ers build N300m lodge to boost em­ploy­ment

Daily Trust - - LABOUR -

The Med­i­cal and Health Work­ers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN) has com­mis­sioned a 22-bed lodge val­ued at over N300 mil­lion to boost its in­come and con­trib­ute to job cre­ation in the Federal Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory

Min­is­ter of Labour and Pro­duc­tiv­ity Emeka Nwogu, who com­mis­sioned the project over the weekend, charged other unions and the en­tire or­gan­ised labour to in­vest in mass hous­ing for the ben­e­fit of its mem­bers and the less priv­i­lege in the so­ci­ety.

Wogu, who charged labour unions to be pru­dent with fund util­i­sa­tion, said the union had “not only cre­ated em­ploy­ment in as­sis­tance to the federal and state gov­ern­ments…but also cre­ated wealth be­cause the people who you are go­ing to em­ploy here will equally be in a po­si­tion to em­ploy other people at the end of the day.

While com­mend­ing MHWUN Pres­i­dent Com­rade Ayuba Wabba for the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the project, Wogu as­cribed the peace be­ing en­joyed in the health sec­tor to Wabba’s sagac­ity as a labour leader.

Also speak­ing, Pres­i­dent of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Ab­dul­wa­hed Omar stated that the congress has con­cluded plans to go into mass hous­ing for the ben­e­fit of its mem­bers and the gen­eral pub­lic.
