El-Rufai Orders 50 Per Cent Salary Slash for Political Appointees

 Kaduna state, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has directed all senior government appointees in the state including Commissioners, Permanent Secretaries, Special Advisers and Heads of Agencies to each donate N500,000 in April 2020 as their contribution in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in the state.

According to a statement issued by his media Adviser, Muyiwa Adekeye, El-Rufai said that the extension of the quarantine conditions by another 30 days imposes an obligation to make provision for the low income, poor and vulnerable persons that would be adversely affected, as they may be unable to earn any income while the lockdown persists.

The governor further directed that the political appointees will subsequently donate 50% of their salaries until the quarantine ends.

He also noted that other categories of political appointees will also be making monthly donations to support the provision of relief to the low income, poor and vulnerable residents of the state.
