Minimum Wage: Civil Servants Celebrate Gov. AbdulRazaq

Civil Servants in the State Ministry of Communications have commended the State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on the implementation of the new minimum wage across all levels of the service.

The workers held special prayer sessions on Friday to beseech God to continue to guide the Governor aright.

The workers later trouped to the office of the Commissioner, Hon. Olabode George Towoju, to urge him to pass their appreciation to the governor.

Speaking on behalf of the workers, the Director Personnel, Finance and Supply (DPFS), Alhaji Hassan Taiye Afodun, said workers in Kwara State have never had it so good, in terms of minimum wage.

Afodun said apart from promoting workers' welfare, the governor has also been implementing projects that have the potentials of boosting the economy of the State.

He gave an example of the Ilorin Visual Arts Centre under construction, the Innovation Hub under construction, and a host of other projects, which on completion, will deepen opportunities in the arts, entertainment and ICT sector of the economy.

In his response, the Commissioner, Hon. Olabode George Towoju, said he was pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming appreciation by the workers.

Towoju said Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has shown that he is a man of honour in governance as he delivers on his promise.

The Commissioner also described the governor as a man with the gold fingers whose drive for excellence has been motivating the workers in the State.

The commissioner further asserted that the governor would remain committed to qualitative governance, especially on the welfare of the people of the State.
