News Kano governor slashes political office holders’ salaries by 50 percent

The governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has announced the easing of lockdown in the state despite rising numbers of the coronavirus.

This was contained in a press statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Social Media to the Governor, Abubakar Aminu, on Sunday.

The governor was quoted as saying that the reduction was due to the shortfall in the federation account and collapse in the internally generated revenue because of COVID-19 challenges.

He noted that the slashing of the salary takes immediate effect from May.

The statement added, “Due to shortfall of the price of oil in the global market which affects world economy and eventually causes a serious shortfall in the federation account for states, the state slashes the salary of all political office holders by 50 percent.”

“This includes the Governor and his Deputy, all Commissioners, Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants among others.

“At the local government level those affected are Chairmen, Deputy Chairmen, Elected Councillors, Supervisory Councillors, Advisers and Secretaries of Local Governments.

“There is also a serious set back in the IGR, due to COVID-19 pandemic challenges. Whereas almost all companies in the state are no longer in operation due to lockdown.”
