Kwara cuts work days to three over transport fare increase

In a bid to ease the pains of its people, Kwara state government on Monday, issued a directive to cut down work days from five to three days per week in the state over increase in transportation fare.

This was disclosed in a statement by Murtala Atoyebi, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, in Ilorin.

In accordance with the directive, Mrs. Susan Oluwole, the State Head of Service, gave immediate instructions to all Heads of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) to devise a format stating the alternate workdays for each employee under them.

Oluwole claimed that the government has implemented a short-term solution to reduce the stress on the state’s public employees.

She added that it was a part of efforts to lessen the hardships faced by state employees as a result of the Federal Government’s removal of fuel subsidy.

She emphasised that her office will step up its routine supervision of MDAs to guarantee strict compliance, cautioning the staff not to abuse the governor’s goodwill.
