Gov El-Rufai Sacks 99 Political Appointees
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El Rufai has sacked over 90 of his political appointees.
The governor revealed on Thursday nights that the state government had yet to disengage any civil servant as only agencies connected to the local government system have disengaged staff.
El Rufai in his statement to reporters listed those affected to include the 23 local government councils, State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), and the Primary Health Care Board.
He said ‘’So far, 99 political appointees have lost their jobs but we have not commenced rightsizing civil servants,” adding that “we want to be fair with regards to civil servants. We had earlier promised that before we reduce the size of the civil service, we will start with political appointees and we have done that.”
El Rufai explained that the disengaged political appointees constituted 30 per cent of the total number of political office holders in the state.
