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.
