Bill On Ramadan Bonuses Rejected : Kano by icez: 11:36am On Jun 21, 2012
Ibrahim Shuaibu

An amendment brought before the Kano House of Assembly, seeking an absolute power of the Kano State Governor to use his discretion in the payment of Ramadan and ram bonuses to civil servants in the state once in a year has been rejected by the lawmakers.

By the provision of the new amendment to the law which was signed in 2005, the governor should use his discretion to approve payment of ram and Ramadan bonuses to all public and civil servants in the state, contrary to initial provision that made it mandatory for the government to ensure prompt payment.

THISDAY observed that at yesterday’s sitting, representatives of Dambatta, Hafizu Maidaji; Warawa, Labaran Abdu; Doguwa, Salisu Ibrahim and Municipal, Salisu Maje Ahmed all kicked against the proposed amendment to the law, while five other representatives supported the new changes.

The amendment proposal, according to the House Majority Leader, Hamisu Makoda, was to give the governor the power to pay Ramadan and ram bonuses to public officials and civil servants as he deems appropriate once in a year.

Since the assumption of office of the present administration, workers associations have been demanding the government to effect payment of such bonuses in compliance with the law that made it mandatory and legal.

However, just Wednesday the government decided to seek for the repeal of the section that legalises the payment, requesting the legislative chamber to change the section of the law.

LMAO.

These guys would rather have money shared than build infrastructure which Kano is in dire need of. Is this bonus going to every resident of kano or just the government employees?

Why not send the money on education.
As the federal government is building almajiri schools, they should also assist by building more (mostly in the rural areas)

Doesn't Kano state have alot of business people and companies?
Why can't the government tax them and use the money to provide infrastructure, just like other states.
