Hon. Chris Mbu-Ogar

 By Chris David

The Lawmaker representing Etung State Constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly, Hon. Chris Mbu-Ogar has stressed the need for Government and Private Sector partnership in ensuring the safety of Workers in Construction and Allied Industries.

Ogar who is the House Chairman, House Committee on Commerce, Industry, PPP, and Privatization made the call while contributing to the debate in the floor of the house for the passage of the "Cross River State Safety of Workers Bill 2020" sponsored by Rt. Hon. Charles Ekpe.

Earlier in his Committee report, he expressed dissatisfaction over the prevalence of inadequate medical/ financial compensation for Workers who suffer life-threatening deformity in the line of duty. 

He, however, expressed hope that when the bill is passed into law, employers will be mandated to provide better health orientation and training for their employees.
