The government of Kano State has stopped the payment of N30,000 minimum wage to civil servants in the state and have now reverted to the former N18,000 minimum wage.

 

Spokesperson to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai said they reason for the revert to the former minimum wage was due to ‘COVID-19-induced recession’. He added that the state government can’t afford to pay the N30,000 minimum wage.

 

Yakasai told The Cable;

 

“The state government has reverted to the initial minimum pay due to the recession. What we are getting now as a government has reduced, and we can’t afford to pay the N30,000 minimum wage.”

 

A civil servant who spoke to the publication on anonymity, said they were not informed of the development. The source said;

 

“We saw the deduction in our November and then December pay, and nobody told us anything. The pensioners also had deduction in their pay and no reason has been given for this.”
