Kwara state Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed on Friday said the dwindling federal allocation has put a burden on all and sundry to be ready for sacrifice in the days ahead. He stated that many states of the federation are in a very tight financial corner. Speaking at the Workers' Day celebration in Ilorin, the governor charged workers in the state to equally be ready to make sacrifices as government strives to move the state forward. However, he said his administration was irrevocably committed to its shared prosperity project to better the lives of Kwarans. “Government remains committed to sustain and improve the welfare and wellbeing of civil servants in the state. But we all must be ready to make good sacrifices for the development of the state”, Ahmed represented by the Head of Service, Alhaji Dabarako Mohammed said. He commended workers in the state for voting the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded general elections in the country, adding that government would strive to meet their yearnings and aspirations. Earlier, new NLC state Chairman, Comrade Yekini Agunbiade condemned the privatization process of the liquidated Nigerian Paper Mill Limited, Jebba describing it as the “greatest fraud of the century.” He said the process “saw the workers of the company grossly underpaid apart from the outstanding salary arrears that ranged from January 1996 to March, 2001.”
