Kwara State government has taken temporary measure to ease the burden of public workers in the state following the astronomical hike in transport fare.
The state Head of Service, Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole announced on Monday that Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazak has directed that the work days be reduced from five to three per week for every worker.
She explained that the measure was to relieve the state workers of the hardship being experienced as a result of the fuel subsidy removal announced by the Federal Government.
Mrs Oluwole 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 Head of Service however, warned the workers not to abuse the magnanimity of the governor, stressing that regular monitoring of MDAs by her office would be intensified to ensure strict compliance.
