Kwara to offset SUBEB, LG workers’ salary arrears, gratuities with N3.5bn SURE-P refund
Kwara State government has said the N3,529,734,298.96 SURE-P (ECA) refund it received on behalf of the 16 local government areas will go into paying parts of arrears of unpaid salaries to SUBEB teachers, local government workers, and other categories of workers and officials.
The state Ministry of Local Government, Chieftaincy and Community Development, in a statement said: “In line with the administration’s commitment to use any extra funds to steadily offset the arrears owed to the SUBEB and local government workers and other categories of persons owed by the past administration, a decision has been taken to use the N3.5 billion SURE-P refund to pay the workers.
“This is a show of good faith and a reassurance that every kobo owed to the workers by the former administration will be paid at every opportunity because it is their legitimate right.”
The statement listed the part-payment to be made to include gratuities for retired local government workers, salary arrears for SUBEB and local government workers, traditional rulers, and promotion for SUBEB and local government workers.
“It is important to stress that these arrears totalled N11,112,233,818.20, so the ECA refund will go into paying parts of it, just as the government has been using any extra funds or savings (after meeting their obligations) to steadily offset the huge arrears,” it said in the statement.
