The Kwara State Government has approved a temporary palliative measure to bring some ease to workers following the removal of the petrol subsidy by the Federal Government.
The state’s Head of Service, Mrs. Susan Modupe Oluwole, announced this on Monday in a statement issued in Ilorin by her spokesman, Murtala Ayotebi.
Oluwole said: “The State Governor, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has directed that the workdays be reduced from five days to three days per week for every worker.”
She directed all heads of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) in the state to immediately work out a format indicating the alternating work days for each worker under them.
The Kwara State Head of Service 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.
