Kwara state has  been ranked high in a survey carried out by BudgIT, for timely payment of salaries and pensions.

In its latest survey, BudgIT affirmed that Kwara state government has no unpaid salary arrears; in the face of the financial challenge bedeviling the country.

However, a few local governments are owing teachers as much as four months in salary arrears. A spokesperson of the Kwara State government told Pulse that unpaid teachers salaries are the responsibility of local governments.
