The Chairman Local Government Service Commission and Cahirman Local Government Staff Pension Board, Hajia Sarat Ibrahim Adebayo, has urged the Kwara State LG and LGEA Pension Desk Officers at the sixteen Local Government Areas of Kwara State on the core value of social scheme to justify the confidence repose in them by the LG Pension Board in line with the policy trust of the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed.

While acknowledging the importance of the Desk Officers, she charged them not to loose focus on the objective of the board and to do everything possible to enhance the welfare of the pensioners.

"As we all know that there is a time to come into the service and there is a time to leave. It is this exit point that we all find ourselves and it's because of this importance to the general wellbeing of the retirees, you need to be diligent and be dedicated to your duties and with the fear of God."

"This present board was constituted in January, 2017 to reposition the board for more productivity, effectiveness and enhance service delivery," she added.
