Kwara State Government Implements Three-Day Workweek for Public Servants
In response to the recent surge in transportation costs, the Kwara State Government has implemented a temporary solution to alleviate the burden on public workers in the state. This decision was announced today by Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole, the State Head of Service, on behalf of Governor Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazak. The new directive reduces the workweek from five days to three days for all state employees.
Mrs Oluwole explained that this measure aims to ease the hardship faced by state workers due to the removal of fuel subsidies by the Federal Government. To ensure the smooth implementation of the reduced workweek, she has instructed all Heads of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) in the state to promptly devise a schedule indicating the alternating work days for each employee under their purview.
However, Mrs Oluwole cautioned workers against taking advantage of this gesture from the Governor. She emphasized that her office would intensify its monitoring of MDAs to ensure strict compliance with the new arrangement.
This temporary reduction in workdays seeks to alleviate the financial strain caused by the increased transportation expenses, offering some relief to public servants in Kwara State.
