The Sinn Fein representative stated that thousands of workers are caught in a trap, exploited and tethered to contracts which only provide minimal hours and uncertain pay from week to week. “The Government’s Low Pay Commission is ineffective, and the proposed collective bargaining legislation is way off the mark in terms of what is urgently needed to address this problem. This is unacceptable, especially on the part of the Labour Party,” said Cllr McCreesh, speaking in support of workers at Dunnes Stores.

Igali, who is the state’s Commissioner for Sports Development, gave the warning while addressing the athletes, saying “using drugs to win in a game is not helpful in strengthening talent”. He expressed worry at the development and noted that the state government would not take it lightly with any athlete who resort to cheating to win medals in any tournament. The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the commissioner, who is also the President of Nigeria Wrestling Federation had received the state’s weightlifters who just returned from a competition. They had participated in the National Open Weightlifting Championships in Jigawa, where they won six medals made up of three gold, one silver and two bronze. Igali commended the weightlifters for their outstanding achievement in spite of the constraints they experienced before their departure. He urged the athletes to always be passionate and dedicated, instead of waiting for monetary incentives before taking part in sports competitions. The commissioner pointed out that weightlifting offers an athlete the opportunity of winning more than one medal at national, continental and global championships. “I urge you to be up and doing. The state government is making arrangements to sponsor and support athletes to the forthcoming National Sports Festival in 2020 and we are hopeful that you will make us proud,” he said.Tags: athletesDaniel Igalilast_img read more
