I am therefore directed to inform all Heads of Ministries, Department and Agencies, MDAs, that the reduced number of working days has been reversed, hence, all categories of workers are to observe the normal five working days per week, with effect from July 10, 2023.
Kwara State Government has reversed its recent directive reducing official working days for civil servants to three days. The civil servants will now return to the initial five working days.
Recall that Governor Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman had on June 5, 2023, through a letter from the office of the state Head of Service, Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole, reduced working days to three after the removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government on May 29.
However, in a letter to the Heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, in the state on June 26, the Head of Service reversed the directive to allow FG and the organised labour to work out modalities on more efficient interventions to cushion the effect of the subsidy removal.
