Earlier, the outgoing state President of NULGE, Comrade Jerry Nnubia, said the leadership of the Union struggled for the harmonization of salaries of state and local government workers without success, but appealed to the Governor to ensure it went across board with the incoming regime of the Union

Nnubia, further said the contributory pensions scheme as being operated presently in the state was against the spirit and letters of the law establishing it
