The Governor of Kwara State, Mr Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq who expressed his readiness to sustain a close working relationship with workers, enjoined the leadership of NLC and TUC to begin dialoguing with the Federal Government on the lingering issues of fuel subsidy removal.

The Director-General, Michael Imoudu National Institute for Labour Studies, MINILS Ilorin Kwara State, Comrade Isah Aremu commended NLC for making the institute a training ground for Nigerian workers and told participants of the commitment of the institute management under him continue to make MINILS a most conducive environment for labour education in West Africa.

The Country Director, International Labour Organisation, ILO, Miss Vannissa Phalla, represented by ILO Senior Technical Specialist, Violata Chinyangarara described the training as timely and urged workers to unite.

On his part, the representative of the American Labour Centre Solidarity Centre, Mr Sonny Ogbuehi encouraged workers particularly in the informal sector to organise themselves to be able to improve their economic conditions.
