In keeping with its earlier pledge, Kwara State government has released the sum of N250m augmentation approved by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed to the 16 Local Government Councils in the state to enable them pay workers’ salary.
This was disclosed by the state Commissioner for Finance, Mr Demola Banu, during a meeting with the Local Government Chairmen.
The Commissioner urged the Chairmen to put all necessary machinery in place to ensure that workers are paid ahead of Sallah celebrations, noting that the state government has fulfilled its pledge to help LGs pay their workers for the month of August.
Mr Banu stated that the Chairmen should notify him immediately if they face any challenges accessing the fund so he can intervene.
