Dr Kayode Fayemi’s government in Ekiti State has again demonstrated its commitment to making life more comfortable for the workforce as it approved the disbursement of N131,000,000 as vehicle loan to civil servants in the State.
The Commissioner for Finance and Economic Development, Mr. Dapo Kolawole made this known at a press briefing in his office in Ado-Ekiti.
Mr. Kolawole, who said the Kayode Fayemi-led administration has prioritized the welfare of workers in the employ of the State Government, added that the loan would be distributed to 422 civil servants in the state. He said another disbursement will still be made before the end of the year.
While reminding that the vehicle loan is a revolving grant, the Commissioner stressed the need for the beneficiaries to pay back in good time for others to benefit.
Mr. Kolawole, who noted that the state government recently paid gratuity worth N200million to 88 pensioners in the state as a demonstration of its commitment to the welfare of the retirees and the aged, assured that this would be a continuous exercise.
This would be the second time vehicle loan would be distributed to civil Servants since the inception of the current Kayode Fayemi-led administration.
