He made the revelation during a media parley which took place at the Africa House, Government House, Kano on Monday, assuring that, with the new budget size, the state would do everything possible to see that, the security of the state, health and education, among other critical sectors, were not compromised.

“We are reviewing our budget with 30 percent cut, just to match with the challenge posed by this COVID-19 pandemic as is the case world over. The reviewed document will soon be taken to the State House of Assembly,” he explains.

Disclosing that, ongoing projects would be looked at, with the intention of assessing how they can match with the possible cut in the fiscal document size, he said he would ensure that, “The service to humanity is still and will continue to be our priority.”
