In a bid to improve the working condition of workers in his Local Government secretariat, the executive Chairman of Mkpat Enin Local Government Area, Hon. Ekanem Brown

Chairman of Mkpat Enin Local Government Area, Hon. Ekanem Brown

has carried out massive repairs and upgrade of facilities at the council secretariat.

A quick observation at the new lease of life enjoyed by the staffers of the Local Government Secretariat reveals that facilities like water and electric power supply, stationeries and office furniture which were completely lacking at the council secretariat have been restored and provided by Hon. Brown within his two months in office.

The council boss had during his inaugural meeting with workers at the secretariat promised to provide them conducive working environment through repairs of basic amenities at the council secretariat, provision of working tools, prompt payment of salaries and rewarding best performing staff for each year. And soon after his swearing-in, he and his cabinet members embarked on tour of facilities at the council were he discovered that many basic facilities at the secretariat were either nonexistent or in state of disuse. He immediately embarked on a spree of renovations and resuscitation, resulting in the improved working environment now enjoyed by workers of the local government.

Speaking recently while inspecting the progress of work carried out by the team of engineers contracted to restore amenities at the vicinity of the council; Hon. Brown decried the level of decay of facilities and the poor working condition that the staff had been subjected to, and urged the contractors to expedite action so as to ‘bring new life’ to the council secretariat and environs.

In his words, “The level of decay of basic social amenities in this secretariat was a bit worrisome and for sure no worker can give his best under such working condition. We have already contracted a team of engineers to resuscitate the power plant which has been in disuse for a long time, and they have done that. As we speak there is constant power supply especially during work hours. A new water plant has also been put in place to service the secretariat, neighboring communities and most importantly the primary health centre here. It is noteworthy to mention that we have also recorded a major breakthrough in the area of security by putting in place a vibrant vigilante team to secure facilities and check nefarious activities of vandals and more so by restoring hope to our youths. All these are to give our workers the enabling environment to serve the people better”.

The restored water and electricity supplies are also expected to enhance better service delivery by the primary health centre located within the premises of the Local Government Secretariat, which has been receiving numerous interventions from the LG boss since he assumed office.
