The Kwara State government has approved a temporary palliative measure of reduced working days to three days per week in the public service.

This is coming on the heels of the harsh effects of the removal of subsidy on petrol by the Federal Government and the threats by orgnanised Labour to embark on a nation-wide protest strike over the subsudy removal.

The state government said that the cut in the working days was to bring some ease to its workers.

A statement by the Kwara State Head of Service, HoS, Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole, said that the state governor, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has directed that the workdays be reduced from five days to three days per week for every worker.

Mrs Oluwole directed that all heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, in the state to immediately work out a format indicating the alternating work days for each worker under them.

The HoS however, warned the workers not to abuse the magnanimity of the governor, stressing that the regular monitoring of MDAs by her office would be intensified to ensure strict compliance.
