He described the development as a reflection of the commitment of the present administration to improve the welfare of workers.
He noted that the government had continued to fund loan schemes for its employees in spite of the paucity of funds in the state occasioned by the general economic downturn and dwindling allocation from the federation account as well as the effect of the recent global pandemic.
He urged the beneficiaries to judiciously utilize the money and cautioned them against spending the loan on things that would not add value to their lives.
The Commissioner also charged workers to reciprocate the government’s gesture by rededicating themselves to their duties and supporting the administration’s efforts to develop the State.
