Abdulfatah Ahmed, Kwara State Governor, on Thursday ordered the allocation of recent revenue from the federation account to workers’ salary and other entitlements in the state.

There have been hiccups in the state’s payment of salaries of late, but the governor has resolved to bring the payments up-to-date.

He stated this during a meeting with union leaders in the state and chairmen of the local government councils to deliberate on the June federal allocation to Kwara, which was better than in other recent months, with the intention of channelling it towards remedying the unpaid salaries of civil servants and other government workers.

Addressing the labour leaders, Demola Baanu, Commissioner for Finance, explained that the joint allocation committee had resolved to pay one month’s salary to the workers, which includes the teachers instead of being paid in percentage as was the practice.
