Listen to article

The Chief Medical Director of David Umahi Federal University Teaching Hospital, DUFUTH, Uburu, Ebonyi State, Prof. Uzoma Agwu has called on Governor Francis Nwifuru to create jobs and improve workers’ welfare.

She made this appeal while speaking with newsmen after the post-inauguration thanksgiving of the governor, which took place at Saint Emmanuel Catholic Parish, in his hometown of Edukwachi, Izzi LGA of Ebonyi State.

Prof Agwu said: ‘I believe that Nwifuru is destined to be governor, and thank God that the former governor, David Umahi, handed over power to him. God made it possible that he (Nwifuru) will rise to be our leader at this time of need in the state.

‘The welfare of civil servants should be looked into. The very first thing I want him (Nwifuru) to look into is the issue of civil servants and manpower. A lot of people have retired from the civil service, and they have not been replaced.’

‘The salaries of civil servants are nothing to write home about. He (Nwifuru) should look at it and see how to intervene because things are not getting better for them.’

She further urged the governor to work out how to enrol civil servants in a health insurance scheme to better their lives.

Agwu also called on Gov Nwifuru to improve the education sector.

In another report, the Government of Anambra State has unveiled an electronic identity card that will be used by civil servants and other government employees to curb impersonation, ghost workers, and other ills in the system.

The card was unveiled at the weekend by the Head of Service of Anambra State, Mrs. Theodora Igwegbe, at the Jerome Udorji State Secretariat in Awka, the state capital.

While unveiling the identity card, Igwegbe said it would strengthen the identity management of workers in the state by enabling the government and citizens to easily identify civil servants and all other government employees.
