Kaduna Sacks 4042 Local Government Workers
The Kaduna state government has disengaged 4,042 local government workers across the 23 local government areas in the state, citing redundancy as reason.
The state commissioner for local government and Chieftancy affairs, Alhaji Jafaru Sani, told journalists at a press conference in Kaduna that 3,159 of the disengaged staff had put in 10 years and were retired while the remaining 893 had their jobs terminated.
He said the disengaged staff would be paid their November salary as well as 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.
