Governor Nasir El Rufai is not taking lightly his desire to ‘cleanse’ the state civil service in Kaduna.

State authorities have confirmed the disengagement of 4,042 local government workers across the 23 local council areas.

According to commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Jafaru Sani, among those affected, 3,159 staff had put in 10 years and were retired, while the remaining 893 had their jobs terminated.

The retired staff will receive their November payment, and three months salary in lieu of notice, as their pension will be worked out by their various administrators.

For the 893 staff who’s contract were terminated, they will get their November salary and one month payment in lieu of notice. They will also get their gratuity according to the civil service rule.

Sani stated that LGAs in Kaduna were overburdened by redundant and unproductive staff who are contributing nothing to the development of the councils.

“With the disengagement, the supporting members of staff at the 23 LGAs are now 6,732, excluding primary school teachers and primary health care workers.

“I am sure, with this development, local government areas will soon start executing capital and development projects to provide social services to the people.
