Ahmed predicts end to salary crisis soon
Speaking during a meeting with heads of tertiary institutions in the state at the Government House Ilorin, he expressed optimism that the state and federal government efforts to end the hardship caused by salary arrears in the country will start bearing fruit by next month.
He therefore called on staff of the affected tertiary institutions and agencies in the state to exercise patience as the state government is doing everything possible to resolve the situation which he said was caused by the drop in allocation to all tiers of government for the past one year.
Alhaji Ahmed based his optimism on the expected bail out from the Federal Government, which he said will restructure loans owed by the states and free up additional funds for the payment of salaries and other government obligations to the people.
Speaking further, the state governor added that the government’s renewed revenue drive will make revenue collection efficient and reduce government’s reliance on federally allocated revenue.
