The Kwara State Gov­ern­ment has re­leased N1.2 bil­lion for the pay­ment of teach­ers’ salary, as com­pared to the N706 mil­lion re­ceived in June.

The state Gover­nor, Al­haji Ab­dul­fa­tah Ahmed, gave this com­mit­ment dur­ing an in­ter­ac­tion with local gov­ern­ment chair­men, their trea­sur­ers, labour lead­ers and top gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials on Mon­day night.

“The Kwara State Gov­ern­ment is to aug­ment the July 2016 fed­eral al­lo­ca­tion to local gov­ern­ment coun­cils in the state with N160m to en­sure that teach­ers and all other local gov­ern­ment work­ers are paid their full salaries for the month”, he an­nounced, saying the in­ter­ven­tion be­came nec­es­sary be­cause the July al­lo­ca­tion to local gov­ern­ment coun­cils was in­ad­e­quate to pay the full salaries of all local gov­ern­ment work­ers.
