Fuel subsidy: Kwara reduces work days to three


News reaching NOTM from Kwara State indicated that the government has announced that all workers are now to work for three days in a week instead of five.

This came on the heels of the recent sudden removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government, which has led to dislocations in transportation fare and other essential services.

This announcement was contained in a statement issued by Murtala Atoyebi, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazak on Monday.

The statement read in part, “The Kwara State Government has taken temporary measure to ease the burden of public workers in the State following the astronomical hike in transport fare.

“The state Head of Service, Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole, announced today that the State Governor, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazak has directed that the work days be reduced from five days to three days per week for every worker.”

Oluwole has directed all heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to immediately work out a format indicating the alternating work days for each worker under them.

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