Civil Servants To Resume Five Working Days In Kwara

The Kwara State Government has called off its directive of reducing official working days for civil servants to three days.

The civil servants will now resume to the normal five working days.

On June 5, 2023, Governor Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman through a letter from the office of the state Head of Service, Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole, reduced working days for civil servants to three.

The directives came after the removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government on May 29.

Meanwhile, on June 26, in a letter to the Heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, in the state, the Head of Service revoked the directive to allow FG and the organised labour to work out modalities on more efficient interventions to cushion the effect of the subsidy removal.

“For this reason, it has become imperative to revert to the former state of affairs, where civil servants observe five working days pending when a position is reached by the government and the labour.

“I am therefore directed to inform all Heads of Ministries, Department and Agencies, MDAs, that the reduced number of working days has been reversed, hence, all categories of workers are to observe the normal five working days per week, with effect from July 10, 2023.

“Workers not covered in the initial workday reduction, which lasted a few days, will have stipends given to them as a show of appreciation,” the letter said.
