Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State on Monday disclosed the plan of his administration to disengage some public servants in the state for fiscal reasons.
This was contained in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Muyiwa Adekeye, and seen by Reporters At Large.
The governor stated that the decision was painful but necessary to salvage the state’s finances.
According to him, a significant amount of the statutory federal allocations is being spent on the wages of public servants monthly.
A part of the statement read: “The public service of the state with less than 100,000 employees and their families) cannot be consuming more than 90 per cent of government resources, with little left to positively impact the lives of the more than 9 million that are not political appointees or civil servants.
“It is gross injustice for such a micro minority to consume the majority of the resources of the state.”
