Kano Gov. Yusuf Stops Salaries of 10,000 Workers

Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has ordered the State’s Accountant General to stop the salaries of 10,800 workers employed by his predecessor, former Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The State Accountant General, Abdulkadir Abdusalam, announced the Governor’s directive on Monday while addressing Journalists in Kano, North West Nigeria.

Abdusalam said the Governor ordered his office to remove the affected workers’ names from the State’s payroll.

He said his office would carry out an investigation to find out the genuineness of their engagement and procedures so as to remove those illegally recruited.

About Local Government workers in the state, Abdusalam said those who were converted to State workers by the former Administration would continue receiving their salaries.

It will be recalled that the new Administration had accused the former Administration of “illegally” employing over 10,000 workers when it was about leaving office.
