…unveils new zonal chairman
The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has called on the serving governors in the North-central region to do everything possible and pay the accumulated salary arrears being owe in their various state, which the party described as a major source of hardship on the workers of the region.
The party also called on the governor, especially that of Nasarawa, Kogi, Pleatue and Kwara, who are yet to conduct their local government election to do so as a matter of urgency.
Speaking with newsmen yesterday in Abuja shortly after the North-central zonal meeting of the party, where a new zonal Vice Chairman, Hon. Apollos Akever Aga, was unveiled, the national publicity secretary of the party Alfa Mohammed, said SDP at the zonal has been re-positioned for better outing in the future elections.
While condemning the cases of unpaid salary by the region’s state governors, Alfa Mohammed, enjoined them to look inward for better internally generated revenue.
He said: “It is important for any serious government to take serious wages of its workers,” he said.
The party also enjoined the region state governors to wake up and invest more in the girl child education and “also ensure the revival of the nomadic education to address herdsmen menace in the region.”
Reacting to the recent Benue Local Government election, the SDP called on the National Assembly to scrap State Independent Electoral Commissions (SIECs) across the country.
Also speaking, the new North-central vice chairman hon. Aga assured that his emergency will add value to the party, even as he promised to be a loyal party member.
