Subsidy removal: Kwara govt reduces workdays to three for workers

211

The Kwara State Government directed on Monday that all employees in the state have their workdays cut from five to three days.

This, according to the administration, comes after the skyrocketing increase in transit costs.

This information may be found in a statement made in Ilorin by Murtala Atoyebi, the governor’s chief press secretary.

Therefore, Mrs. Susan Oluwole, the State Head of Service, gave immediate instructions to all Heads of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies to devise a format specifying the alternate workdays for each employee under them.

Oluwole said that the government took the temporary measure to ease the burden on public workers in the state.

She also said that it was part of measures to relieve the state workers of the hardship being experienced as a result of the fuel subsidy removal announced by the Federal Government.

She, however, warned the workers not to abuse the magnanimity of the governor, stressing that the regular monitoring of MDAs by her office would be intensified to ensure strict compliance.
