KADUNA – Immediately after being sworn in as Kaduna State
22nd Goovernor, by the Chief Justice of Kaduna state, Justice
Tanimu Zailani by 10:15am Friday, Mallam Nasir El Rufai
addressed the state and said he was contributing 50% of his salary
and allowances to Kaduna as a mark of his sacrifice. He said that
his deputy, Arc. Balla Barnabas Bantex had also agreed to make
the same sacrifice.
He however warned that it was a gesture he would also expect
from citizens of the state when called upon to do so.
El Rufai who spoke to a huge crowd at the Murtala Square,
Kaduna, also informed the gathering that the situation of Kaduna
state which he had inherited was tragically backward. He however
said he was going to give in his best.
Reads part of El Rufai’s speech: “Kaduna State is in a difficult
situation. As soon as we have all the facts in coming weeks, we
shall lay bare to you just how deep a hole we have dug ourselves
in the past several years. But this much we already know.
“Our finances are a shambles. Kaduna is the second most
indebted state in our country. Our state is staggering under the
weight of billions of naira in debt and other liabilities. As we all
know, merely by walking the streets or seeing our neighbors
everyday, the state of our state is abysmal. Our schools and
hospitals, our roads and bridges, our villages, towns and cities, all
are markers of backwardness.
“Too many of our children are hungry and in rags and in the street.
Our society is divided along religious and ethnic lines. Worse still,
our state cannot stand on its own feet. We have become a state of
beggars, a condition of dependency that is an affront to our dignity
and our humanity.

Good move! I hope our amiable President and other federal appointees would do the same. These people already have enough. Its not even too much if they give up the whole salary. More of it...
