Ahmed de­cries in­cit­ing com­ments in Kwara

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Romoke W. Ah­mad, Ilorin

The Gover­nor of Kwara State, Ab­dul­fa­tah Ahmed, has cau­tioned politi­cians in the state against mak­ing in­cit­ing state­ments on hard­ship faced by some work­ers due to the state’s in­abil­ity to pay their salaries.

He said that the sit­u­a­tion whereby some work­ers in the state have not been col­lect­ing their salaries would soon be a thing of the past.

Ahmed, who stated this dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion of First Class staff of of­fice to eight newly up­graded tra­di­tional rulers in the state, hinged his op­ti­mism to end the sit­u­a­tion on the on­go­ing ver­i­fi­ca­tion of staff, re­form of in­ter­nal rev­enue gen­er­a­tion mech­a­nism and pro­posed takeover of fund­ing of ju­nior sec­ondary.

“These im­moral and un­pa­tri­otic at­tempts to gain po­lit­i­cal cap­i­tal from the plight of work­ers af­fected by the huge drop in al­lo­ca­tion to all tiers of govern­ment in the coun­try must be con­demned and resisted by all stake­hold­ers, in­clud­ing tra­di­tional rulers,” he said.
