NOT AGAIN: Kwara State Worker Commits Suicide Over Unpaid Salaries.

Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed.
Another civil servant has committed suicide over unpaid salaries and this time around, it is in Kwara State.

The deceased, Mr. Biodun Bashir is said to be a staff of the Universal Basic Education (UBE) in Kwara State at Oyun Local Government.
According to Abdulrazaq O Hamzat, Kwara Must Change, the group regretted “to bring to public attention, the death of
Mr Biodun Bashir, a staff of Universal Basic Education (UBE) in Kwara State at Oyun Local Government, who recently hung himself to death over failure of the Kwara State Government to pay workers salaries and their continued denial of owing workers.”
“The staff, Mr Biodun Bashir a.k.a. ‘Legal’, who is a driver working under UBE committed suicide by hanging on Saturday, 28th October 2017.
“According to those familiar with the incident, Mr. Biodun, like other workers have been living under severe hardship for many years without any hope of improvement.

“While the state government owes workers several months’ salaries, they continued to claim they do not owe in the media, a false propaganda that continues to cause depression to many workers. This is so because, the denial of government implies that they do not intend to pay what they owe workers,” and it is important “to add that, while the death of Mr Biodun Bashir as a result of the wicked act of Kwara state government filter to public hears, there are several other worst cases not heard in the public. We are left to wonder how many workers have died of hunger, ill health and others without public attention.
