BREAKING: ‘Fubara’ Fixing Rivers Civil Service

In developed climes or nations the place leaders know what their statutory or constitutional obligations and duties are, commending leaders for providers which might be throughout the ambit of their statutory duties, could also be thought-about as sycophantic.

Nevertheless, what appears to be sycophantic is inevitable when incumbent leaders do what their predecessors intentionally refused to do. For example, it’s the statutory obligation of Authorities and different employers of labour to advertise eligible staff, pay their remuneration and different advantages, as and when due. Consistent with the Nationwide Minimal Wage Legislation. Employers of labour are obligated to pay a minimal wage of N30,000 to their staff. Failure to do it, is violation of the legislation able to breeding industrial disharmony. What some administrations throughout Nigeria couldn’t do for eight years for his or her staff, Governor Fubara achieved it in lower than eight months of his administration.

On Monday, February 12, 2024 the Govt Governor of Rivers State, Sir Siminalayi Fubara directed that Native Authorities Space staff in Rivers State must be paid N30,000 Minimal Wage and different entitlements instantly. Governor Fubara additionally directed the rapid cost of N35,000 Wage Award to cushion the pains occasioned by Nigeria’s depressed financial system riddled by hyper inflation and unemployment.

Additionally to be carried out instantly is the promotion of staff of the Native Authorities which have been stagnated for eight years by the earlier administrations within the State. It’s worthy of observe that some native authorities areas have commenced the processes of selling staff on the junior cadre, in keeping with the directive of the Govt Governor of the State-the “Folks’s Governor. For its half, the Rivers State Native Authorities Service Fee has additionally hit the bottom operating, assiduously working to make sure that no stone was left unturned in strictly complying to Governor Fubara’s clear directions.

Already, staff within the senior class are being evaluated by the normal civil service promotion procedures and are presently present process interview that can take them to their acceptable ranges after eight years of undeserving stagnation. Some good natured and God-fearing native authorities space chairmen have additionally promised staff of implementation of N30,000 minimal wage which they haven’t earned because the Minimal Wage Legislation was enacted. It’s unbelievable, baffling and incomprehensible that native authorities areas staff within the 23 native authorities areas of Rivers State nonetheless earn previous wage construction when Edo, Lagos, and many others pay above the nationwide minimal wage. It’s unhappy to listen to that 5 years after the minimal wage turned a authorized instrument requiring strict enforcement, the earlier administration didn’t see the necessity to enhance on staff’ welfare.

Why ought to native authorities areas staff throughout the board stay on previous salaries within the face of harsh socio-economic realities. Contemplating the anomaly and pains staff within the native authorities areas have suffered through the years, it’s no flattery to explain Governor Fubara as a messiah, a “Daniel that has come to judgment”-to proper the wrongs, redress deprivation and injustices. Fubara has once more proved to staff that he stays their buddy, a trusted ally and a buddy certainly.

The governor Fubara feels the pinch as a result of he has worn the civil servants’ “sneakers”. I’m wondering how a authorities elected by the individuals thus derives its legitimacy of management from the individuals, would deny their rights and deal with their welfare with disdain. Growth that doesn’t think about human capital improvement will inevitably translate to an train in futility as a result of within the phrases of the Russian Thinker, Lao Russell, “In useless you construct the town in the event you don’t first construct the person”.

The human a authorities refused to construct on a whim for roads, bridges and different infrastructure, will destroy these infrastructure with impunity. It’s pertinent to state that, of all of the components of the worth chain of manufacturing, the manpower is probably the most essential one. Each human organisation rises or falls on manpower. If the manpower shouldn’t be motivated as skilled within the final eight years of earlier administration in Rivers State, will probably be abysmally counter-productive. Reasonably than enhanced productiveness, the organisation will undergo main setbacks and failure. Employees are companions with authorities.

No administration which is aware of the indispensable roles of staff as catalysts to reaching insurance policies and programmes ever treats them with disdain. Governor Fubara deserves commendation as a result of what his predecessor had refused to do, not as a result of there was no cash, however as a result of he didn’t see it as a precedence, Fubara has accomplished it for native authorities space staff and public servants within the Rivers State make use of.

Fubara’s feat is a testimonial of his humane nature, empathy, compassion, good nature and good nurture. I pray that the Governor must be constant in doing good to the tip as a result of the “finish crowns the work”. Employees ought to give again to the Fubara-led Rivers State by their unflinching loyalty, assist to his administration, and recommit to rising their productiveness for a larger Rivers State beneath God.
