Ganduje reduces salaries of political appointees by 50%Kano State Governor, Abdullahi has slashed salaries of political office holders in the state by 50 per cent due to dwindling resources caused by COVID-19 lockdown.

Ganduje, in a statement issued on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Abba Anwar, on Sunday 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.

Ganduje noted that, “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.”
