Yusuf stops salaries of 10,000 workers employed by Ganduje 

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano state has stopped the salaries of 10,800 workers employed by former Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

Yusuf’s administration had accused Ganduje’s government of illegally employing 10,000 workers when it was about to leave office.

The Kano state Accountant General, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdusalam, told journalists Monday that the governor ordered his office to remove the workers from the state’s payroll.

He said he would ascertain the authenticity of their engagement and procedures and remove those illegally recruited.

He stated further that all local government workers converted to state workers by the former governor will continue receiving their salaries.
