Former House Speaker, now Senator of Margibi County, Emmanuel Nuquay pledges his commitment to work with the Booker Washington Institute Workers Union for the improvement of their living conditions.
Serving as guest speaker at the induction of the institution’s Workers Union leadership over the weekend in Kakata, Margibi County Senator Nuquay attributed his current life success to knowledge acquired at the Institution during his days as student at the BWI.
The Margibi County Senator who pledged his initial cash support of one thousand United States dollars (US$1,000) to the Union called on the newly inducted leaders to discharge their duties with respect for people they lead.
He also called on them to be leaders and not rulers of the people which according to him will make their leadership more vibrant.
For his part, the newly inducted President of the BWI Workers Union, Foday Rogers promised to use the first year of his current tenure to advocate for increase salary and other basic needs of workers of the Institution.
Rogers further frowned on the decision of government in taking the autonomous status of the BWI.
The BWI Workers Union President meanwhile encouraged his colleagues to unite with one voice in making sure that their welfares and concerns are addressed by national government.
He said it is unacceptable for a staff at the government run institution to be earning less than US$125.00 despite the work they do.
