Leader of the Opposition Godwin Friday has dismissed as “lies” what he says is a statement that a New Democratic Party Administration would dismiss civil servants because of their politics.
He said that state employees have been telling him that they really want to vote for his party, but are scared because of rumours that he would fire government workers.
“… my entire campaign is about creating jobs. If you listen carefully; everything we do is about creating jobs,” he said, quoting what he said was his response to a woman who had asked for assurances.
“They last thing that I want to do is to take somebody job and create greater unemployment in this country,” the opposition leader further stated.
“What we will insist upon is that whoever is working, that you do your job. You serve your country, you do what you are being paid to do and that is all that people want and you have nothing to fear,” Friday said.
