Gov.-Abdulfatah-Ahmed“Kwara State Government is to augment the July federal allocation to local government councils in the state with N160 million to ensure that teachers and all other local government workers are paid their full salaries for the month.”


 

Kwara State Government has released N1.2 billion for the payment of teachers’ salaries, even as Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed approved a five-man panel of enquiry to probe alleged irregular mass recruitment in the state Teaching Service Commission.

The money released for the teachers’ salaries was higher than the N706,131,293.13 released in June by N160 million.

Governor Ahmed announced this during an interaction with local government chairmen, their treasurers, labour leaders and top government officials.

The governor said: “Kwara State Government is to augment the July federal allocation to local government councils in the state with N160 million to ensure that teachers and all other local government workers are paid their full salaries for the month.”

He said the intervention became necessary because July allocation to local government councils was inadequate to pay the full salaries of all local government workers.

The governor hinged the intervention on the completion of the workers verification exercise.
