Lagos Govt. disburses N390M death benefits to 264 workers’ relatives

The Lagos State Government has disbursed over N390 million death benefits to families of 264 deceased staff of Local Government and State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) in the state.

The payment, made in two tranches, is part of the state government’s efforts to support the families of its deceased employees and fulfill promises of better welfare.

The Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy Affairs and Rural Development, Bolaji Robert, who revealed this on Monday during the 2024 ministerial press briefing held Ikeja, stated that the funds were paid in tranches to the deceased workers’ beneficiaries.

Aside from that, Robert disclosed that 14 public toilets were constructed inside markets and other strategic locations, to curb open defecation among Lagosians.

The Commissioner added that 14 public toilets were in different stages of completion across the state, saying the state is determined to end open defecation in the state.

The locations were: Ikorodu North Central market, Ikorodu; Mayiyabe Market, Oriade LCDA, Badagry; Goodwill Plank market, Kosofe; Ayetoro market, Epe; and Ita Faji market.

The Commissioner stated that the government has flagged off a 400-meter road in Ijake community in Oto-Awori Local Council Development Area (LCDA) and a 510-meter road at Ganiyu-Oduntan/Lamidi-Agoro Street in Ikorodu, as well as several ongoing projects.

Roberts explained that the present administration is conscious of the fact that to achieve overall development of the state, there must be significant and commensurate development at the grassroots level.

He disclosed that the Governor has approved the delivery of 10 additional 500KVA transformers to 10 communities across the five divisions of the state.

“These projects will help reduce rural-urban migration and enhance semi-urban development in our rural communities, thereby promoting economic prosperity and development,” he noted.
