Families Of Deceased Lagos State Workers Receive 391 Million Naira


To the families of the 164 state employees who passed away during the course of the previous year, the Lagos State Government has donated more than N391 Million. This project is an extension of the state’s dedication to guaranteeing the well-being of families in the local communities.

Bolaji Robert, Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy Affairs, and Rural Development, announced this on Monday while presenting the ministry’s achievements for the previous year. He highlighted the significant financial support provided to the families of the deceased workers.

A statement from Adebayo Kehinde, Assistant Director of the ministry’s Public Affairs Unit, confirmed that these funds were mainly used for insurance payments to the families of local government officials and staff of the State Universal Basic Education Board.

Robert emphasised that these payments are crucial in providing financial stability to the affected families. He stated that this initiative reflects the government’s dedication to the well-being of its employees and their families.

In addition to the financial aid, Robert discussed ongoing efforts to improve local communities. He mentioned that the state is actively working with stakeholders to drive grassroots development and urban renewal projects.

One notable project is a recent two-day workshop for 376 councillors from the state’s 57 councils. The workshop aimed to enhance their legislative skills and improve local governance.

This training is part of a broader strategy by the Lagos State Government to strengthen the effectiveness of local councils. By equipping councillors with better skills, the government aims to enhance service delivery to communities.

Robert also highlighted other initiatives focused on sustainable development in rural areas. He reiterated the government’s commitment to balanced development across both urban and rural regions.

The state’s efforts to support the families of deceased workers and invest in the training of local councillors demonstrate a comprehensive approach to development. These actions are designed to ensure that all residents benefit from government initiatives.

As Lagos State continues to roll out these programmes, it aims to improve the quality of life for its citizens, making the state a better place for everyone to live.
