Kwara Governor Is Elected Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum
Workers and students at public tertiary institutions in Kwara State will enjoy free transportation inside the state capital of Ilorin and its surrounds beginning on Wednesday.

The action by the Kwara State administration is the second phase of measures to mitigate the effects of the elimination of fuel subsidies.

According to Naija News, the state administration decreased governmental officials’ workdays from five to three days each week.

The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, approved the deployment of government buses to enable the movement of students and personnel in public tertiary institutions inside Ilorin and its environs in the second phase of the measures.

The governor’s principal press secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, issued a statement on the development on Sunday.

He claims that

“From Wednesday, June 14, some large buses will be deployed to transport students of public tertiary institutions within the metropolis, including those going to the Kwara State University (KWASU), the campus at Malete. Further details will be released by the coordinating Ministries, Agencies, and Departments (MDAs.)

“The state government will continue to offer immediate support for the Kwara public as Nigeria permanently transitions to the post-fuel subsidy regime and different steps are taken to bring more ease to the people while sustainably growing the economy.”

In another statement signed by Murtala Atoyebi, Chief Press Secretary of the Kwara Government House, personnel whose work duties cannot be fulfilled by the reduction in workdays due to the special nature of their official responsibility were given extra palliative to support them.

According to the statement

“To this end, the government is working assiduously to provide appropriate allowances to support these categories of workers as a stopgap measure, pending conclusions on the review of minimum wage.

“The Kwara State Government is not ignorant of the evolving challenges of the removal of fuel subsidy. Thus, in furtherance of the recently approved reduction in workdays for its Civil Servants, the government is set to provide succour for workers that could not be covered by the reduction in workdays due to the peculiar nature of their official duties.

“The State Government had last Monday, announced a reduction in workdays from five to three days for its Civil Servants as part of efforts to address the challenges of fuel subsidy removal.”
