Delayed Salary: KWSG sources for alternative


…we’ll pay on or before Friday – Commissioner

By Matthew Denis

Respite is on the way for civil servants as the Kwara State Government has assured that they will receive bank alerts for their June Salary on or before Friday.

The assurance was given by the state Commissioner for Finance, Alhaji Nurudeen Ademola Banu during a chat with National Pilotyesterday.

“The state government under the leadership of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed is sourcing for an alternative means for money to pay the salary of workers for the month of June 2018.

“We are believing that with all things being equal we’ll pay on or before Friday by the grace of God.

Recall that the  Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun had last week said  the stalemate at the Federation Account Allocation Committee meeting would delay the payment of workers’ salaries in the states.

She said that the council was briefed on the Federal Allocation

edFAAC debacle where states resolved to wait until the poor remittance made into the federation account by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation  (NNPC)was reconciled before they would receive their allocations. The minister had during the FAAC meeting accused NNPC of remitting N120 billion instead of N147 billion as the statutory amount to be remitted.

In a related development, the Kwara State Chairman of Senior Civil Servants Association of Nigeria, Comrade Nasir Olumoh Kolawole has called on the statse government to facilitate an alternative to clear workers salaries.

He made the suggestion during an interview with this medium yesterday.

He said ” The situation we find ourselves is quite unfortunate for NNPC an establishment of government meant to generate revenue through cruel oil and considered backbone of the economy to be in this mess.

The chairman stated that for the states governors to have revolted that NNPC must remit the whole money generated is justified and good for democracy.”
