Assembly Demands Workers’ N3bn Salary Arrears.

Assembly Demands Workers’ N3bn Salary Arrears.

Kwara State House of Assembly has urged the state Government to investigate the failure of a consultant to pay N3 billion salary arrears to local Government and SUBEB workers in the state.

This is coming after the Government released N3 billion to a consultant in February 2024 to clear all salary arrears for SUBEB teachers and local government workers inherited from the administration of ex-Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed.

Salihu while arguing the motion seconded by Hon Abolarin Ganiyu, Ekiti Constituency drew the attention of the Assembly to the non-payment of the salaries arrears of Local Government and SUBEB workers to the consultants by the state Government, and expressed worry that, for some time now, the money has not reached the beneficiaries, thereby defeating the purpose of the release, which was to motivate and fast-track the transformation and development of the local Government council via the prompt payment of salary and salary arrears.

Salihu also said, “Despite the effort of the state government to ensure prompt payment of salary arrears to local Government workers and SUBEB, the consultant is unnecessarily delaying the payment thereby, sending the wrong signal to the workers and general public.

After debating the motion, which other members supported, the Assembly, in its resolution, appreciated the state Governor, Mallam Abdul Ramanm AbdulRazaq, on prompt payment of local Government and SUBEB workers’ salary arrears, and urged the governor to direct the Ministry of Local Government, Chieftaincy Affairs, and Community Development to collaborate with the Local Government Service Commission to investigate the delay in paying the released arrears to the local Government workers.
