Chairman of Warri South Local Government Council Area, Dr Michael Tidi, has revealed that the past years he’s been in the saddle of power in the council has been quite rewarding.
Tidi made this statement on Thursday in Warri during the 14th Annual General Meeting of the Warri South Staff Welfare Multi-Purpose Cooperative Society held at the council’s Secretariat, Warri.
Tidi, who spoke briefly at the AGM, commended staffers of the council for the robust working relationship they have had with him over the years.
Tidi, who is serving his second term in office, said, “This past years that I have been on the saddle has been quiet rewarding in the sense that I believed we have had a robust working relationship amongst ourselves and I have seen how the staffers in this Council have gone about their duties with all sense of professionalism, decorum and respect for the rules.”
He also advised staffers of the council to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the cooperative society to better their lives.
“When it comes to the cooperative society, I have also been inundated with reports and briefs off how you all have equally contributed to the collective till and how the cooperative have in no small measure, impacted in your lives and your welfare.
“For that I want to commend, not just the President and his Executive members, but you all who have played your roles one way or the other in strengthening the cooperative.
“I want to ask you that whatever you get in the cooperative, you should plow it into a profitable venture so that at the end of the day, you will be able to get something in return.
“It’s not enough to belong to such cooperative society and when you are given money, the first thing you think of doing is to go and marry a second wife. This is not good.
“Please look at what is happening in the country and around the world. These are not the best of times. So whatever comes into your hands now, please use it judiciously,” Tidi advised further.
He prayed God to bless all Warri South council workers so that at the end of the day, the council will be better for it.
