Kwara Govt Issues New Directive On Salary Payment

The Kwara State Commissioner of Finance and Planning, Mrs. Oyeyemi Olasumbo Florence has instructed Kwara Civil Servants to immediately open account with commercial banks in order to ease the payment of their salaries.

The Honorable Commissioner made the call today while speaking to journalist in her office on the issues surrounding welfare of civil servants in the state and the Governor’s resolute plans to improve the socio-economic conditions of Kwarans.

She stressed the need for civil servants to as a matter of urgency consider opening accounts with commercial banks in order to fast track monthly payment of salary and avoid technical errors which could cause unnecessary delay in getting their entitlements as at when due.

“All Kwara state civil servants are mandated to open salary account with commercial banks between 5th – 18th of February, 2020 for the purpose of salary payments, as payment will no longer be made to any Microfinance bank account moving forward” she emphasized.

This, according to the Finance Commissioner is in line with the agreements in place as negotiations on the payment of the new minimum wage reached an advance stage.
