Lagos pays N364.9m to families of deceased local council, SUBEB workers
In a statement, yesterday, the Commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Dr. Wale Ahmed, disclosed this during the presentation of insurance benefits to 159 members of the family of late employees of Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) and Local Government Service Commission in Ikeja.
Ahmed, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Mrs. Morenike Kikelomo Sanyaolu, said that the payment of insurance benefits to families of deceased members of staff was one of the several welfare packages of the state government for its workforce.
He, therefore, charged the beneficiaries to honour the deceased members of staff by ensuring that the benefits collected are wisely invested to cater to the family members of the deceased.
Managing Director, LASACO Assurance Plc, Mr. Rasaq Abiodun, commended Lagos State Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for the consistent payment of insurance benefits to its employees, adding that the gesture has helped in actualising the aspirations of the families and dependents of some government officials who died in the course of their career in the state public service.
