LAGOS State Government has disbursed N364.9 million insurance benefits to the first batch of beneficiar­ies of deceased members of staff of local councils and State Universal Basic Education Board ( SUBEB).

In a statement, yesterday, the Commission­er for Local Government and Community Affairs, Dr. Wale Ahmed, disclosed this during the presentati­on of insurance benefits to 159 members of family of late employees of Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board ( LASUBEB) and Local Government Service Commission in Ikeja.

Ahmed, who was represente­d by the Permanent Secretary, Mrs. Morenike Kikelomo Sanyaolu, said that the payment of insurance benefits to families of deceased members of staff was one of the several welfare packages of the state government for its workforce.

He, therefore, charged the beneficiar­ies to honour the deceased members of staff by ensuring that the benefits collected are wisely invested to cater for the family members of the deceased.
