The Director, Administration and Human Resources, Office of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts (CBD), Mr. Ishola Rahman, has reiterated the commitment of the State Government to improving the welfare and well-being of operatives.
Rahman said this on Tuesday while addressing the Lagos Island CBD operatives at its operational office, assuring them that the State Government is doing everything humanly possible to ensure that allowances of the operatives are paid regularly as at when due.
He attributed the recent delay in paying three months allowances to the operatives to the expiration of tenure of the former Head of the Agency in May 2023 which necessitated the re-presentation of application for approval to the Governor.
While assuring that approval for the payment of three months allowances is being given the speedy attention that it deserves, he appealed to all operatives to continue to be patient, urging them to be more dedicated and resolute in the discharge of their duties within the CBD enclaves despite the delay.
Meanwhile, the Office has intensified the clearing of shanties and makeshift shops along the Marina axis of Lagos Island. Also, illegal shops extended onto the roads within the Idumota and Balogun markets have been removed with a warning to others across all markets to stop further erections of illegal structures.
