Ahead of the 2023 general elections, mine workers in Ogun State, under the aegis of the Ogun State chapter of the Nigerian Union of Mine Workers, NUMW, have d declared their total and unalloyed support for the second term bid of the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun.

The union premised their support for Governor Abiodun on the good governance being espoused by the governor across the length and breadth of Ogun State.

The Public Relations Officer, PRO, of the union, Soneye Tunde, made this known in an interview with newmen, shortly after leaders and members of the union met with the governor in his Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta office, insisting that the NUMW is proud of the modest achievements of the governor.

Noting that the union had contributed immensely to the economic development of the state, Soneye stated that the union remains the only one in the state that has collected more haulage fees.

Soneye said, “We are here to tell him that we have adopted him for a second term in office, we are here to tell him the entire members of the union across the state are ready to work to bring him back into office, because we have seen his good works since the beginning of his administration.

“We are contributing very well to the economy of the state, to the extent that the government has given us the revenue collection for haulage fee and we happen to be the only body that has collected more revenue than any other body.”

The PRO drew the attention of the state government to the need to enforce discipline in haulage collection, adding that no one is bigger than the state government.

Earlier, Governor Abiodun had commended the union for its peaceful and calm dealings, saying that he is glad with the good reports he got from the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment about the union’s activities.

Abiodun charged members of the union to be law abiding in their activities, insisting that the union must also continue to show that its members are responsible members of the public.
