Following the end of subsidy regime by Tinubu-led government, Kwara state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq on Sunday has approved the deployment of government buses to support the movement of students and workers within the state.
This is contained in a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye and made available to Journalists on Sunday
The statement reads in part: “The bus palliative for the students covering the metropolis is the second phase in the measures by the Kwara government to cushion the effects of the fuel subsidy removal.
He noted that civil servants’ work days were reduced to three days.
“From Wednesday, June 14, some large buses will be deployed to transport students of public tertiary institutions within the metropolis, including those going to the Kwara State University campus at Malete.
“Further details will be released by the coordinating Ministries, Agencies and Departments (MDAs).
“The state government will continue to offer immediate support for the Kwara public as Nigeria permanently transitions to the post-fuel subsidy regime and different steps are taken to bring more ease to the people while growing the economy in a sustainable way,” he said.
