Hooligans : Nigerian governor to renovate deputy’s office for N180milion, four months after it was built for N303 million

Alhaji-Umar-Ganduje

Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Wednesday approved the termination of the employment of 2,620 sanitation workers on N10,000 stipend, just as he ordered the release of N180 million for the renovation of the office of the deputy governor.

The office, built at the cost of N303 million, was commissioned by the immediate past governor of the state, Rabiu Kwankwaso, on March 13.

Addressing reporters on the outcome of the weekly Executive Council Meeting, the state Commissioner for Information, Youth, Sports and Culture, Mohammed Garba, said the decision to lay off the casual workers was prompted by government’s resolve to ensure probity in their payroll.

Although he didn’t give reasons for the office renovation, the commissioner explained that most of the sacked workers were redundant as they hardly report to their duty posts.

Mr. Garba, a former president of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), said the state government plans to start the recruitment exercise afresh in order to select diligent workers for quality service delivery.

The commissioner also disclosed that the state governor approved the sum of N12 million for renovation of a ruptured bridge in Yaryasa village in Tudun Wada Local Government Area of the state.
