Medical workers build N300m lodge to boost employment
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.
