I have told you that things are gradually changing in Nigeria. Every Governor now wants to be in Nigerians good book. God bless the social media, lol.
Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje today announced a 50% cut in the salaries and allowances of all political office holders. The Governor made the announcement during the swearing-in ceremony of 13 new commissioners for the state.
“I hereby announce that the salaries and allowances of all political office holders are reduced by 50 per cent. We shall pursue an aggressive internal revenue generation in view of the dwindling oil revenue from the federation account as business will no longer be as usual,” he said.
He also disclosed that the new administration had also introduced new reforms including reduction in the number of ministries from 19 to 14, to cut cost of governance.
