Governor Ganduje Slashes Political Appointees' Salaries By 50% by nairapark: 2:23pm On May 18
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has slashed the salaries of political office holders in the state by 50 per cent due to dwindling resources caused by COVID-19 lockdown.

Abba Anwar, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, said this in a statement in Kano on Sunday.

Mr Anwar said the action was due to shortfall in the revenue accruing to the state following the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

He said the decision affected the governor, deputy governor and all public office holders in the state.

“Due to shortfall in the federation account and collapse in the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) because of COVID-19 challenges, all political office holders in Kano State are to receive half salaries with effect from May.

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

“Other areas where the state gets revenue are no longer operational. This also is another reason for slashing the salaries,” he said.‎

Mr Ganduje said that the salary cut would also affect local government chairmen, their deputies, councillors, advisers and other functionaries.

Welcome development, but that doesn’t mean the state will record any different in expenditure. They will still get their full allowances and also loot like they always do.

He will also do well to slash the size on his babariga into two to reduce the volume of dollars it can carry.

The slash should be permanent. The cost of governance is too high at all levels in Nigeria.

The perks of office should be removed. That way, only those who want to serve will seek elective office.
