Teachers, Pensioners: Kwara Offsets Ahmed-era Salary Arrears with Additional N1bn
•Pays 100% CONHESS for LG health workers
Kwara State Government has committed another N1,031,149,451.36 (one billion, thirty one million, one hundred and forty nine thousand, four hundred and fifty one naira, thirty six kobo) to again offset the salary arrears the last administration owed to local government workers, basic school teachers and pensioners.
The government has repeatedly said it is committed to settling the arrears it inherited from the past administration as resources permit.
Also, in January, the government began the payment of 100% CONHESS for health workers at the local government levels — along with the monthly palliatives of N10,000 per worker and pensioner.
Between January 2020 and January 2024, the government has spent at least N5.5bn to offset the arrears of salary and gratuities for SUBEB teachers, local government workers and local government pensioners alone — apart from meeting its multibillion naira monthly obligations to these categories of workers and many others since it was elected in 2019.
