Gov Elrufai Sacks 4,042 Kaduna State Local Government Workers

Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-rufai, has approved the disengagement of 4,042 local government staff across the 23 local government areas of the state.

This development was confirmed by the state’s Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Alhaji Jafaru Sani, on Tuesday.

Addressing a news conference in Kaduna, Sani explained that the sack was part of the ongoing restructuring of the local government system for effective service delivery.

He also said that the restructuring was designed to strengthen the local government system in order to carry out developmental projects and programmes.

Sani noted that 3,159 staff among those disengaged had put in 10 years and were retired while the remaining 893 had their jobs terminated.

Speaking further, the commissioner explained that the retired staff would be paid their November salary including three months’ salary in lieu of notice, while their pension would be worked out by their pension administrators.

Sani added that those whose appointments were terminated would equally be paid their November salary, one month salary in lieu of notice and gratuity according to the civil service rule.

Similarly, the Permanent Secretary, Local Government Commission, Mr Mahmud Zailani, explained that the ongoing local government restructuring was part of Gov. Nasir El-Rufai’s campaign promise to strengthen public service.

“The governor began his public service restructuring at the state level when he reduced the number of the state ministries from over 20 to 13.

“A number of permanent secretaries and other staff had to go during the process as part of efforts to provide quality public service.

“I say here that the disengagement was not forced on the LGAs but was carried out with their full support and each LGA was treated according to its peculiarities,’’ Zailani said.
