The chairman of the Lagos state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Idowu Adelakun, told newsmen that he felt bad because the Governor was not at the workers’ day celebrations.

Adelakun said “This government promised us a government of inclusiveness, but for the governor not to be here today, I don’t think it’s inclusive.

“So it’s unfortunate and it’s unexpected of a person of Akinwunmi Ambode.”

The Lagos NLC chairman also said “The relationship (between the governor and the workers) has been very cordial. As you are aware, the governor too had been a worker, he’s the former Accountant General of Lagos State.

“So we have been working together. He’s not a new man to us. For him not to come here today, he did that for the best reason known to him, which is not the best for him.”

The workers also commended the Lagos state Governor for consistently paying their salaries.

Governor Ambode was represented at the celebrations, by the Lagos State Head of Service, Olabowale Ademola.
