“I congratulate all members of the union as they mark this year’s Eid-el-kabir and urge everyone to embrace love, peace and tolerance as the main symbol of Islam.
” I also appeal to the entire NULGE members in the state to support the administration of his Excellency, Architect Darius Ishaku to achieve his goal of a rescue mission in the state.
“We commend him for his prompt and being up-to-date in payment of workers salaries in the state.

“I Call on our members to reciprocate this gesture by showing commitment to work as the administration has demonstrated its care and passion for workers’, He said.
Mahmud also commended the state government for coordinating various security agencies in the state to ensuring a drastic reduction in crime in the state.
According to him, kidnapping that had been a major security threat has been depleted to the barest minimum in the state.

He said that the situation has affected members of the NULGE adversely.
The chairman, who did not mention the number of his members that had falling victims, called on both state and Federal governments to proffer lasting solution to inter ethnic clashes in the southern part of the state.
He also appealed to the warring factions to eschew bitterness and embrace peace and love for the development of their communities.
