Kwara Govt. Sets Up Committee To Verify Claims of Christian Marginalization

The Kwara State Government has set up a committee to look into claims of marginalization by the state branch of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.

This is in response to allegations by the organization that Christians in the State Civil Service are less favoured in the area of appointments, promotion and transfer.

Members of C.A.N. had earlier complained to the State Government, forcing several meetings with the organization.

The seven-member fact-finding committee inaugurated by the Deputy Governor, Peter Kizira, has been asked to look into the alleged favoritism in deployment of staff in the State Civil Service.

The committee has as members; the former Head of Service, HOS, in the state, Alhaji Yusuf Kawu Daibu as Chairman, while Mrs. Modupe Oluwole will serve as the secretary along with five others as members.
